Health Science Center at Brooklyn: Clinical Practice Management Plan (Follow-Up Review)

The Health Science Center at Brooklyn operates a teaching hospital. Patients at this hospital are treated by faculty from the Center's medical school. The revenue generated by this medical care is regulated by the Center's clinical practice management plan. For example, this revenue can be spent only to compensate the medical faculty and for other necessary business purposes relating to the clinical practice, and a certain portion of the revenue must be set aside for the benefit of the medical school. In our prior audit report 93-S-82, we found that some expenditures did not seem necessary for business purposes and the medical school had not received its full share of the revenue. In our follow-up review, we found that the actions we recommended to address these and other such problems have not been fully implemented.
