Bass, Berry & Sims attorney Danielle Sloane will speak at the G2 Intelligence's Outreach Lab Leadership Summit at the session titled, "Market Your Outreach Program with Compliant Sales and Marketing Policies and Procedures." This session will address how labs can achieve sales goals without running afoul of healthcare fraud and abuse laws. Labs, like other businesses, need sales and marketing expertise to survive and grow in a competitive market. But certain sales and marketing activities can create liability risks under healthcare fraud and abuse laws such as the federal Anti-Kickback Statute. Danielle will help attendees identify the risks to avoid in sales and marketing an outreach program and review the latest compliance guidance from the government.
Upon completion of this session, participants will be able to:
