Health Ethics Trust (HET) was established as a division of the Council of Ethical Organizations in 1995 in response to growing ethics and compliance concerns in healthcare.  The purpose of HET is to assist healthcare organizations committed to ethical and legal conduct through advisory services, educational programs, training program design and delivery, hotline support and training, survey research on ethics and compliance issues, and shared resources. HET’s on-going research program includes an extensive study of healthcare compliance programs and best practices.

Members of HET includes hospitals, plans, human services organizations, home & long term care agencies, suppliers and pharmaceuticals. We maintain benchmark resources including policies, practices, models and training for most aspects of ethics-compliance programs.
