Friday, February 22, 2019 | 10:30 am - 11:30 am CST

Topic: Opioid Prescribing Practices - Compliance and Quality Update

The opioid epidemic is a national crisis and one of the most challenging issues that health care providers are facing today. Lack of specific government expectations and guidance has created further confusion. With regular and on-going criminal enforcement actions from the Department of Justice, and anti-kickback implications it is more important, now than ever, to review opioid prescribing through a compliance lens. This webinar will help you stay up to date on current opioid prescribing regulations, practice patterns, developing quality measures and experiences across states.
