Ethical Standards

Ethics, Risk and Compliance
Holding ourselves to high ethical standards
We aspire to be a trusted leader in changing the practice of medicine. To realize this vision, we need to earn and maintain the trust of patients, associates, healthcare partners, shareholders and the society we serve. Our aim is to prevent issues from occurring, drive personal accountability for behaviors, and generate learnings that can be applied across the organization. In addition, we maintain a strong commitment to upholding human rights and managing risk in our supply chain. We began this journey some years ago, and we continue to make progress. In 2019, we created the position of Chief Ethics and Compliance Officer, reporting to the CEO, elevating the Compliance function to the highest levels in the company. On February 1, 2019, we combined our risk management and compliance functions into a single department called Ethics, Risk and Compliance (ERC), and announced the new role of Chief Ethics, Risk and Compliance Officer, which was further elevated to become a member of the Executive Committee of Jala.
