AMI to Sponsor the AHLA Virtual Annual Meeting — June 29–July 1

By AMI News, Events

Every year, nearly 1,500 health law professionals join AHLA at its Annual Meeting to get the most current information and analysis on a myriad of legal issues facing the health care industry in thoughtful, practical solution-oriented sessions . This year is, of course, no different than any other in that regard.

The difference is, this year, we won’t be gathering together in-person to attend the programs as so many of us do each year. The unfortunate reality of the COVID-19 crisis makes an in-person meeting of this size untenable at this time, so AHLA has decided to convert the In-House Counsel Program and Annual Meeting to virtual programs.

View the full schedule.

We have included all the high-quality, practical breakout sessions you have come to expect – Keynote Speakers, the fast-paced overview of developments over the past year from the Year in Review, and coverage of all the TOPICS important to health law professionals.

Pay Me Now or Pay Me Later: Eric Feldman Will be Speaking at the 2020 ACFE Virtual Global Fraud Conference — June 22

By AMI News, Eric Feldman Event, Events No Comments

The 2018 policy memo by U.S. Deputy Attorney General Brian Benczkowski offered companies alternative paths to the traditional mandatory corporate monitorship, and the 2019 DOJ evaluation criteria provide a detailed road map for in-house compliance, ethics and anti-fraud practitioners to implement proactive monitoring for positive resolutions. This session will explore how self-assessment of an organization’s ethics and compliance activities through a proactive monitorship can help demonstrate due diligence to regulators and law enforcement, resulting in both better outcomes and a more effective anti-fraud program.

You will learn how to:
• Implement proactive monitoring as a cost-effective way for companies to strengthen their compliance and ethics programs and anti-fraud activities
• Examine the most critical changes to the DOJ guidance that can help compliance officers and anti-fraud professionals focus their resources and energy on the highest risk areas
• Design a proactive independent monitoring strategy that can lead to better resolutions of enforcement, administrative regulatory actions without the imposition of a monitor

Session Details
Monday, June 22 — 3:55PM – 4:45PM

By AMI News, Eric Feldman Event, Events, Rod Grandon Event
Crisis and Compliance in the Federal Marketplace:

Maintaining Effective Ethics and Compliance Oversight, Controls, and Culture in the Midst of Coronavirus Pandemic Disruption
