It’s no secret that thousands of Americans are killed every year due to opioid overdose. And that has compelled the federal government to increase enforcement against healthcare providers. Heavy fines, suspension of medical licenses, and other penalties (including jail time) have made writing even the most necessary legal prescriptions for opioids seem like a Catch-22 situation to healthcare providers. Thankfully, the HHS Office of Inspector General (OIG) and other government agencies have made certain tools available for healthcare organizations and their compliance programs to aid in opioid compliance.
Learn how these tools and compliance programs can help you stay off the authorities’ radar in this informative webinar by healthcare compliance expert CJ Wolf. Wolf will walk you through these tools; the location of these tools, and how they can be used in a practical sense by healthcare providers to avoid being targeted. Wolf will also explain the recent enforcement trends with opioid non-compliance to help you understand who the Department of Justice and OIG are really going after.
After attending this webinar, you will be confident in your ability to apply the principles of a healthcare compliance program to opioid management. Plus, you will know the dos and don’ts of staying on the right side of opioid compliance.

- Locate and use tools to assist with opioid compliance
