Compliance and Health Care Reform

Compliance continues to be a hot topic given the continued increase in enforcement, audits and other aspects of health care reform. On May 7, 2010, the Office of Inspector General (OIG) posted on its website an excerpt from a keynote address that the Inspector General for the Department of Health & Human Services recently gave entitled “Some Questions Compliance Professionals Should Ask As They Prepare for Health Care Reform.” It should come as no surprise that the focus of the questions relate to transparency, quality as a compliance issue and accountability.
