Practical Prescriptions for Alleviating Litigation PainPDF
From Medicare and Medicaid billing to physician management and employment, virtually every aspect of practicing medicine or operating a business in the health care industry has compliance implications. Not only can non-compliance lead to lawsuits from employees and patients, but it can also trigger scrutiny from federal authorities.
Robinson Bradshaw attorneys Amanda Nitto, Akya Rice and Stephen Feldman discussed compliance issues during a presentation titled "Practical Prescriptions for Alleviating Litigation Pain." They provided practical tips on how to:
- Conduct an effective internal investigation that preserves the attorney-client privilege
- Evaluate and investigate internal employee complaints
- Mitigate the risks associated with employment litigation
- Avoid complaints seeking treble damages under the Unfair and Deceptive Trade Practices Act
