On April 8th I will be presenting in a Health Care Compliance Association webinar entitled "Hot Topics in Laboratory Compliance." My co-presenter is Rob Rossi, Senior Vice President and Chief Compliance Officer, Calloway Laboratories. Rob is a seasoned laboratory industry veteran who also has served as General Counsel of a pathology laboratory and who has spent time in state government. Together we will offer legal guidance while taking into account the operational and business challenges laboratories face in today's health care enforcement environment. Laboratories seem to be in the spotlight lately, as evidenced by the HHS OIG's issuance of last year's Special Fraud Alert on payments by laboratories to referring physicians and Advisory Opinion 15-04 addressing a proposed business arrangement between a laboratory and its physician practice clients. If you are interested in learning more about these issues, there is still plenty of time to register.
