What health systems need to know about FCA enforcement initiatives – with Ethan Davis

In February, the federal government announced that the DOJ's Civil Division had recovered more than $5.6 billion in settlements and judgments under the False Claims Act, or FCA, for fiscal year 2021. This was a huge increase from the previous year – and almost 90% of that money was related to health industry claims. 

Joining Healthcare IT News Senior Editor Kat Jercich to discuss past and future enforcement initiatives is Ethan Davis, partner at King & Spalding.

Talking points:

  • A government wake-up on private equity enforcement
  • DOJ's new cybersecurity initiative
  • How COVID-19 shifted the federal approach to investigations
  • Forthcoming focus on potential Provider Relief Fund fraud and clinical trial fraud
  • The Anti-Kickback Statute and how it affects providers
  • EHRs as a stated area of focus
  • What listeners should be aware of around telehealth
  • How stakeholders can protect themselves
  • Predictions for the rest of 2022
