Bass, Berry & Sims attorney Stewart Kameen presented in the American Health Law Association’s Health Care Data webinar series in a session titled “HIT Fraud and Abuse: Sprints, Relays, and Hurdles on the Road to Coordinated Care”. Stewart was joined by Amy Leopard and Andrew VanLandingham.

Stewart and team discussed:

  • The HHS Sprint to Coordinated Care one year later—how to use the OIG safe harbors and CMS exceptions to fund and promote digital health, data sharing, data analytics, interoperability, and cybersecurity in value-based settings and beyond
  • False Claims Act Liability for EHR Fraud, Kickbacks, and the Civil Cyber-Fraud Initiative–how false certifications, freebies, and deficient cybersecurity protections can be material and give rise to FCA liability
  • Filling in the gaps for effective compliance oversight and risk management through sources of Compliance Program Guidance and EHR Corporate Integrity Agreements
  • A legal framework and hypothetical case studies for patient engagement and providing valuable technology directly to patients without running afoul of the Beneficiary Inducement Prohibition
