Wk 2 – Signature Assignment: Organizational Research Memo
In this assignment you will use the Organizational Research Memo Template to research organizations, not agencies. Remember that an organization is a company or business – such as a hospital, clinic, or insurance company – and an agency is a part of the government at the federal, state, or local level, such as the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), Department of Labor (DOL), or a state health department.
Select 1 of the organizations listed below. Research the organization’s compliance information. Review the Organizational Research Memo Template to ensure you can obtain all information for the organization you have selected.
- American Red Cross
- American Heart Association
- United Healthcare
- Johnson & Johnson
- Stryker Corp.
- Verizon Healthcare
- GE Healthcare
- A hospital
- A clinic
- An insurance company
- A nonprofit health care organization
- An organization of your choice – the organization should not be a federal, state, or local agency, and must include information that is publicly available.
Write a 700- to 1,050-word memo to the corporate compliance officer. Use the Organizational Research Memo Template to complete the assignment.
