WASHINGTON, DC USA -- PHARMA UPDATE NEWS SERVICE -- APRIL 5, 2019: As the first quarter of 2019, we decided to turn our focus to the dynamic duo of False Claims Act and Anti-kickback Statute. Starting things out, we look back at FY2018 recoveries and settlements to see what the data can tell us about the future. Next, we examine the Dechert LLP annual survey of shareholder actions to see how this increased risk and enforcement actions involving false claim allegations go hand-in-hand.
FEATURE - FALSE CLAIMS ACT
We also feature a two-part series on the Granston memo and its impacts on qui tam litigation. Then we move on to cover the recent changes to the anti-kickback landscape with passage of the Eliminating Kick-Backs and Recovery Act of 2018. Rounding out the issue, Porzio Life Sciences presents a compelling case on using Big Data and AI can improve most compliance programs.
