Fraud and Abuse Compliance for the Health IT Industry
6:00pm - 7:00pmTuesday, March 6
Las Vegas - Venetian Convention Center
As participants in the broader healthcare ecosystem, members of the health IT industry are subject to certain Federal fraud and abuse laws. Compliance with these laws is critical because violations can have significant consequences, including financial penalties and jail time. During this session, representatives from two of the agencies tasked with enforcing these laws (the U.S. Department of Justice and the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, Office of Inspector General) will help attendees understand these laws and how they might apply in the health IT setting. Additionally, attendees will receive tips on how to develop or strengthen a culture of compliance within their organizations to avoid running afoul of these laws.
