  • Public Interest Webinar Series: Electronic Medical Records, Part II: Quality of care / patient safety - On Demand Recording

    Recorded On: 05/03/2018

    Today, providers rely heavily on EHRs and we continue to see gradual developments surrounding quality and safety features. While EHRs certainly allow providers to better manage patient care, they can also give rise to patient safety and quality issues. The panel, which includes a representative of the Joint Commission, in-house counsel of a health system, and a consultant, will provide their perspectives on topics such as alert fatigue, role based access rights, modifications to health care records, proactive care and metrics, medical management, and other key issues the industry faces. This session will also explore processes that can help identify potential safety issues before they can harm patients or affect quality of care and explore policy options that could advance the patient safety aspects of EHR use.

  • False Claims Act, Known Overpayments, Kickbacks and Stark: The Next Wave of FCA Actions - On Demand Recording

    Recorded On: 04/30/2018

    Our expert panel will address these and other emerging FCA developments. This is an intermediate program intended for lawyers and compliance professionals who defend FCA actions or investigate whether an FCA violation has occurred.

    Time: 90 minutes
    Session Format: On Demand Recording

    The False Claims Act (FCA) is the federal government's primary weapon to combat allegations of fraud and abuse in its programs.  Over the past year, significant new trends have emerged regarding FCA enforcement and risk, such as how circuit courts have applied the Supreme Court's ruling in Escobar, how courts are construing what constitutes a known overpayment that must be remitted to the government, and when violations of the Anti-Kickback law and Stark law can constitute a violation of the FCA.  Also, the government's enforcement activities may shift as a result of the Department of Justice's recent Brand and Granston memos.

    Our expert panel will address these and other emerging FCA developments.  This is an intermediate program intended for lawyers and compliance professionals who defend FCA actions or investigate whether an FCA violation has occurred.

    Topics to be address would include trending FCA issues that a significant portion of AHLA's community would have an interest, such as how the FCA's materiality standard is evolving in light of the Supreme Court's ruling in Escobar and what opportunities are presented to defendants in light of the Court's ruling?; how FCA cases involving application of the Anti-Kickback law and Stark law are trending?; what courts are saying about FCA actions alleging a lack of medical necessity, or other issues turning on an application of clinical judgment?; and how are courts applying the 60-day overpayment rule in FCA actions?

    Level of Difficulty: Intermediate

    On-Demand+CLE Webinars

    On-Demand+CLE webinars are eligible for Continuing Legal Education (CLE) credit and are approved in every state with mandatory CLE requirements for attorneys unless otherwise specified. Please refer to the Distance Learning CLE State Chart for details regarding specific state guidelines.

    On-Demand Webinars

    Offerings designated as “On-Demand" differ from those designated as “On-Demand+CLE" in that they are CLE-ineligible. However, CLE credit may be obtained by applying directly to the attorney's state accrediting body, but approval is not guaranteed and is at the discretion of said accrediting body and subject to its rules and regulations. Please refer to the Distance Learning CLE State for details regarding specific state guidelines.

    Other, Non-CLE Credits

    AHLA On-Demand+CLE webinars are only approved for CLE credits unless otherwise stated. To obtain other credit types (Continuing Professional Education, Compliance Certification Board, Nursing Home Administrator, etc.) participants may apply directly their desired licensing body, but approval is not guaranteed and is at the discretion of said licensing body and subject to its rules and regulations.

    For additional information about Distance Learning-related credits, please email the Practice Groups staff at dl@healthlawyers.org.
