Coffey Health System is paying back 10% of its meaningful use incentive payments following a settlement arising from whistle blower claims that it made a false risk analysis attestation. What are the requirements and is your organization at risk for similar claims? Find out as we explore the peculiar case of Coffey Health. 

Webinar Overview

On May 31st, the U.S. Attorney for the District of Kansas announced a $250,000 settlement with Coffey Health System. The settlement resulted from a suit by two whistle blowers claiming Coffey attested to a risk analysis of its EHR system pursuant to the Electronic Health Records Incentive Program and received $3M in incentive payments even though the risk analysis was not completed.  

Historically, the industry looks to OCR and its enforcement activity when discussing HIPAA risk analysis. While the penalties OCR may levy are not trivial, OCR’s approach of providing technical assistance and allowing organizations to come into compliance limits the number of organizations penalized. Coffey changes that.
