Special Counsel Jill Wright is quoted in a FierceHealthcare
article, “OIG Approves Medication Management Pilot, Offering Hints at How it Will Regulate Data-Sharing Partnerships
,” about a new advisory opinion by the Department of Health and Human Services’ Office of Inspector General approving of a medication management pilot.
Wright said the opinion, while limited to the circumstances described in the advisory, offers a framework for collaborations that rely on real-time data-sharing among multiple industry partners. “It shows the industry that when sufficient safeguards are included in the structure of innovative partnerships, OIG will find that they pose a low risk under the Anti-Kickback Statute,” she said.
