20/20 Oversight: OIG's Enforcement Landscape and Health IT

8:30am - 9:30am Wednesday, March 11
Orlando - Orange County Convention Center
W311E

Description

The Office of Inspector General for the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS-OIG) works to protect the integrity of Federal healthcare programs as well as the health and welfare of program beneficiaries. Through a series of case studies and an overview of HHS-OIG's enforcement priorities, participants will receive up-to-date information on health IT fraud and abuse compliance issues and recent developments in HHS-OIG's enforcement activity. Topics to be covered include recent enforcement actions related to the "meaningful use" of health IT services, how HHS-OIG monitors the compliance activities of health IT vendors considered to be high-risk to Federal healthcare programs, corporate responsibility, and best practices that compliance programs can employ to identify and address risks. Participants will also gain insight into the future of HHS-OIG's enforcement activity, especially with regard to information blocking.

Learning Objectives

  • Describe HHS-OIG's enforcement priorities with regard to health IT and Federal healthcare programs
