Speaker: Our speaker, Faith Jones is a partner at Ngage Management Services. She began her healthcare career in the US Navy almost 30 years ago. She has worked in a variety of roles in clinical practice, education, management, administration, consulting, and healthcare compliance. Her knowledge and experience spans various settings including ambulance, clinics, hospitals, home care, and long term care with a focus on rural healthcare where it is not uncommon to wear many hats. In her leadership roles she has been responsible for the operational leadership and corporate compliance and has twice been a member of an executive team whose hospital was named amongst the top 100 hospitals. She has had the opportunity to be a presenter at HCCA and has provided webinars on analyzing the OIG work plan.
Description: The Office of Inspector General (OIG) was established to protect the integrity of Health and Human Services (HHS) programs and operations and the well-being of beneficiaries by detecting and preventing fraud, waste, and abuse; identifying opportunities to improve program economy, efficiency, and effectiveness; and holding accountable those who do not meet program requirements or who violate Federal health care laws.
Our annual OIG update will include an overview of OIG priorities for Hospitals, Swing Bed, Medical Staff Credentialing, Nursing Homes including Skilled Nursing Facilities, Home Health, Hospice, Medical Imaging, Physical Therapy, Sleep Lab / Sleep Testing and the 340 B Program.
