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 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
