What has the healthcare industry learned about referral-based arrangements? And how have some organizations reacted (or not reacted) to the declaration from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) Office of Inspector General (OIG) that physician compensation arrangements may result in “significant liability” if certain protections are not in place?
Reporting on this sensitive issue during the next edition of Monitor Mondays will be Bret Bissey, senior vice president of of compliance services for MediTract, Inc. He’ll report on the OIG fraud alert issued more than a year ago on physician compensation arrangements and the associated potential liability.
Speaking of liability, Timothy Powell, a RACmonitor contributing editor, will return to report on the Bon Secours hospital data breach that affected 655,000 patients. He’ll provide a very candid assessment of what is and isn’t possible when it comes to protecting your data.
Once again, prescription drugs are in the news. Medicare spent $97 billion on prescription drugs in 2014, accounting for more than a quarter of the nation’s spending on prescription medicines, according the Kaiser Family Foundation. And lawmakers are looking into the EpiPen’s price hikes. Reporting on the risky issues associated with hospital pharmacy operations will be Robin Zweifel with Panacea Healthcare Solutions.
Also on the broadcast will be healthcare attorney David Glaser, Esq., a shareholder at Fredrikson & Byron, who will have another installment of his popular segment “Risky Business.” Ronald Hirsch, MD, vice president of Accretive Physician Advisory Services, also will return to make his Monday Rounds.
