The PAN Foundation is excited to announce that Mia Harmon has joined its leadership team as incoming Chief Compliance and Privacy Officer.
Harmon brings more than a decade of diverse experience in healthcare compliance and operations, healthcare privacy, and law. As PAN’s Chief Compliance and Privacy Officer, she is responsible for the oversight and implementation of the compliance and privacy programs, as well as fostering a culture where ethical and compliant behavior is practiced throughout the organization.
“We are thrilled to welcome Mia to our team and have her leading our compliance and privacy programs,” said President and CEO Kevin L. Hagan. “With her extensive experience overseeing compliance programs for several hospitals and health systems, I’m confident that Mia will ensure the important co-pay assistance we provide to patients—along with other efforts—continue to abide by all applicable laws, standards, and regulatory requirements.”
Harmon will serve as incoming Chief Compliance and Privacy Officer alongside Tom Herrmann, PAN’s current Chief Compliance Officer, through April 2023 to ensure a smooth transition of the compliance program.
Harmon previously served as Chief Compliance Officer for CHE Behavioral Health Services, which is a multi-specialty, clinic-based group of licensed professionals dedicated to increasing access to mental health services and reducing the stigma of mental health conditions. In this role, she advised the leadership team on matters related to compliance and risk management and conducted compliance and privacy investigations. In addition, Harmon also worked closely with the operations and quality assurance teams to assess documentation for accuracy and provide guidance related to legal and compliance issues.
Prior to her time with CHE Behavioral Health Services, Harmon spent several years in a contracted role as Physician Practice Compliance Officer with Tenet Physician Resources. She also held various compliance roles with companies like D4C Dental Brands, Inc., WellStar Health System, and Gwinnett Medical Center.
“I’m honored to join the PAN Foundation and have the opportunity to support such an important mission,” said Harmon. “I recognize the critical role compliance plays in allowing PAN to connect thousands of people with the healthcare they need and deserve each year. I am committed to ensuring PAN continues to be the gold standard when it comes to compliance and privacy.”
Harmon received her JD from the University of Arkansas—Fayetteville and holds a BA in human communication studies and legal communications from Howard University. She also holds the Certified in Healthcare Compliance and Certified in Healthcare Privacy Compliance certifications from the Health Care Compliance Association.
