Unpacking the OIG in the Era of Information Blocking

3:00pm - 4:00pm Tuesday, March 10
Orlando - Orange County Convention Center
W230A

Description

This educational session would dive deep into understanding the Office of Inspector General at the Department of Health and Human Services. HHS OIG is the largest inspector general office in the federal government and is charged with overseeing nearly a trillion dollars in HHS spending. The session looks into OIG's legal authority, how it executes that authority through audits, evaluations, and investigations, and how it uses data analytics in its oversight and enforcement strategy. Moreover, the session explores the recent information blocking rule and potentially how OIG could enforce and oversee that program.

Learning Objectives

  • Recognize the importance of OIG jurisdiction and its impact on the health care industry
  • Compare and contrast the different offices within the OIG and identify the level risk when interacting with each office
  • Display knowledge that the OIG can examine how any HHS dollar is spent and how each program operates
  • Identify how the OIG might investigate and oversee ONC's implementation and management of information blocking
