Even an Honest Mistake Can Get a Lab Into Trouble. G2 Intelligence’s New Compliance Guide Keeps Organizations in the Know

G2 Intelligence — a 30+ year leader in research, reporting, and analysis on the business of the diagnostic laboratory industry — announced today the release of Lab Compliance Essentials: Navigating RAC Audits, False Claims Act, Stark and the Anti-Kickback Statute, an important new guide for clinical laboratories and pathology practices of all sizes.

“Whether you’re a large laboratory with a robust compliance program and legal counsel on staff, or a small-to-mid size lab or pathology group faced with navigating these murky waters alone, Lab Compliance Essentials delivers insight into compliance risks faced by all — while providing direction on how to minimize these risks,” according to Kimberly Scott, G2’s Managing Editor and editor of the report.

Lab Compliance Essentials covers today’s most urgent compliance topics, with detailed sections on:

  • Strategies for Avoiding Compliance Pitfalls in Laboratory Sales and Marketing
  • Negotiating Complex Legal and Compliance Issues in Contractual Relationships Between Hospitals and Hospital-Based Pathologists
  • Preparing For and Living Through a RAC Audit: A Guide for the Clinical Laboratory
  • Keep the Whistle Away from the Whistleblower: Strategies for Minimizing False Claims Act Lawsuits
  • Plus appendices on: Laboratory Compliance Guidance; Special Fraud Alerts; and HEAT Provider Compliance Training

“Fraudulent billing practices and concerns about the legality of discounts offered to payers by clinical laboratories remain key areas of scrutiny for federal and state officials,” says Dan Houder, COO and Publisher, G2 Intelligence. “False claims, illegal kickbacks, and violations of the prohibition on self-referral are also on their radar. With so much risk, and the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) continuing to beef up its efforts to combat fraud and abuse in health care, labs and pathologists need the guidance provided in this report more than ever.”

G2’s guide is also invaluable training tool for all team members, including:

  • Compliance Officers
  • General Counsel
  • Sales Managers and Staff
  • Lab Managers and Administrators
  • Billing and Coding Specialists
  • Practice Administrators
