General Session Speakers
Signing Books Today
Two headlining General Session
speakers will be signing books on
Wednesday. Dr. Bennet Omalu, the
first doctor to diagnose chronic
brain damage in NFL athletes, will
be signing books and autographs in
the Exhibit Hall’s Theatre D from 11:30 a.m. to 12:30
p.m. Captain Mark Kelly, a retired American astronaut
and US Navy Captain who served as commander of
Space Shuttle Endeavour, will be signing books and
autographs outside of the General Session in the
Fourth Level Ballroom from 4 to 4:45 p.m..
Hot Session: More to Fear than Just OCR
With a lot of recent attention being placed on the Office for Civil Rights’
HIPAA audits, it can be easy to forget that OCR is not the only entity scrutinizing healthcare providers. In the 11: 15 a.m. to 12: 15 p.m. Wednesday
session “The ‘Other’ Regulators: Who Investigates Healthcare Providers
Other than the Office for Civil Rights?” presenters Ronald J. Hedges, JD,
principal at Ronald. J. Hedges LLC, Allison M. Brown, senior attorney at
the Federal Trade Commission, and Divonne Smoyer, JD, partner at Reed
Smith LLP, will discuss how various federal and state agencies can investigate healthcare providers or their associates. Attendees will learn what
actions or inactions might “trigger” investigations by the agencies and gain
an understanding that strong information governance practices may enable
healthcare providers to respond to regulatory concerns so investigations
become unnecessary—or result in little to no adverse consequences.
