Reed Smith recently issued the following announcement.
Join us to discuss the protections offered to cybersecurity tools, electronic health records (“EHRs”), and other digital health technologies by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (“CMS”) and the HHS Office of Inspector General (“OIG”) under the proposed regulations to modernize the Physician Self-Referral Law (the “Stark Law”), the Federal Anti-Kickback Statute (“AKS”), and the Civil Monetary Penalties Law (“CMP Law”).
Speakers: Nancy Bonifant Halstead Kimberly J. Gold Vicki J. Tankle Rebecca E. Dittrich
Start Date/Time: 21 November 2019, 12:00 PM ET
End Date/Time: 21 November 2019, 1:00 PM ET
In an age when health information is moving online at lightning speed, through increasingly interconnected and interoperable systems and, consequently, cyberattacks attempting to gain access to this information are at an all-time high, we will discuss the key takeaways from proposals by CMS and OIG to protect and except donations of EHRs and cybersecurity technology under the AKS and Stark Law, respectively – both by expanding existing protections, and creating new ones.
We will also focus on the protections offered under the new value-based arrangement framework to companies providing digital health technologies, and the impact on those companies that have been excluded as value-based participants.
