Presentation Details:

Government investigations and liability concerns have increasingly become a concern for healthcare providers, and now even for business associates who provide services to those providers. Healthcare in this country can be a statutory and regulatory quagmire, but understanding the potential obstacles, such as HIPAA concerns, the False Claims Act, the Anti-Kickback Statute, and the Stark Law, will provide healthcare Project Managers the background to avoid government investigations, and to also be prepared in case the government does come knocking.

This presentation will focus on the recent trends in government investigations, and overview of some of the more significant cases, and a summary of the various laws that the government typically enforces that present the most significant legal obstacles to those in the healthcare industry.
