Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine (PCOM) has named Margaret (Peg) McKeon, BSN, Esquire, CHC, as its new chief compliance officer, effective June 26. In this role, McKeon will provide oversight of the College’s compliance program as well as maintain and provide guidance on ethical standards across departments, offices and programs.
Most recently, McKeon served as vice president and chief compliance officer at Crozer Keystone Health System (CKHS), where she oversaw the management and implementation of that organization’s corporate compliance and regulatory program for both the hospitals and physician network. Those programs promoted and addressed regulatory, billing, privacy and internal compliance activities for the health system. She also served as privacy officer for CKHS, a role which oversaw HIPAA compliance.
McKeon is a nurse, attorney and certified in healthcare compliance by the Health Care Compliance Association. McKeon’s professional background includes medical malpractice defense litigation, insurance, risk management and intensive care nursing experience. McKeon has authored publications on ethics and informed consent.
“Peg’s unique blend of legal and medical expertise makes her a welcome addition to our administration,” said Jay S. Feldstein, DO ’81, president and CEO. “I am confident that she will ensure the College continues to operate within all regulatory requirements and within our own internal policies and procedures.”
