Technology has fundamentally altered how we provide healthcare. The widespread adoption of electronic health records, the explosive growth of the telehealth industry, and the rapid emergence of artificial intelligence and other enabling technologies promise to improve quality, enhance efficiency, and reduce costs. But, of course, with new technology comes new theories of liability, some innovative, others less so. Bradley attorneys Amy Leopard, Travis Lloyd, and Jason Mehta provide an overview of recent developments in fraud and abuse enforcement involving health information technology. Topics include electronic health records settlements, telehealth prosecutions, data mining relators, and policymaking on the subject of "information blocking."
