Compliance at pfmmedical

Healthcare Compliance

Healthcare compliance rests on four pillars at pfmmedical.

Our promise: we are committed to acting in accordance with these principles and our agreements with regard to physicians, patients, health-care stakeholders and our own employees.

  • Separation - allowances and other support (e.g. donations, sponsoring, gifts) remain independent of procurement decisions in terms of both timing and causation.
  • Transparency - we present our allowances and payments in an openly accessible form. The company must be informed about all services provided to a medical establishment or health service agency. Written documentation must be kept and permission must be granted.
  • Documentation - details of all services are documented in writing. We record the type, purpose and service provided in every case.
  • Balance - the relationship between performance and return must be fair.

Our Health Care Compliance officer (Dietmar Fiedler) monitors adherence to the relevant regulations in all possible case situations and ensures that cooperation in the health market conforms to the rules.

Human rights and environmental protection

The german Supply Chain Due Diligence Act (LkSG) came into force on 1 January 2023. The aim of the LkSG is to ensure the worldwide compliance with applicable human rights standards and environmental protection in order to promote a fairer and more sustainable global economy and responsible corporate governance.

Due to the number of direct employees (3,000), pfm medical ag is currently not subject to the formal legal requirements of the LkSG. Nevertheless, we are aware of our responsibility and demand compliance with international human rights and environmental protection from our suppliers.

We are not aware of any violations of human rights (pursuant to section 2 para. 2 nos. 1-12 LkSG) and of environmental obligations (pursuant to section 2 para. 3 nos. 1-8 LkSG) within our company and the companies of our suppliers.
