Root authors chapter for "Inside the Minds: Health Care Law Enforcement and Compliance"

Emily Root, attorney in Porter Wright Morris & Arthur's Healthcare Practice Group, has authored a chapter featured in the recent publication "Inside the Minds: Health Care Law Enforcement and Compliance."

Root’s chapter, titled “Why Coding errors still matter and how a compliance plan can minimize liability under the False Claims Act,” focuses on the False Claims Act, what risks employers face, and how a compliance plan can help. With experience representing clients in a range of health law matters in state and federal court- including lawsuits involving claims for reimbursement, unfair competition, breach of employment contracts, rate setting and exclusive arrangements- Root is able to provide insightful suggestions for setting up and maintaining compliance plans.

In “Inside the Minds,” top lawyers share their opinions on recent significant cases, such as Kane v. HealthFirst, Inc. and U.S. ex rel. Drakeford v. Tuomey Healthcare System, Inc., and explore how those decisions might shape healthcare law in the future. As the U.S. healthcare system continues its dramatic shifts, attorneys can look to this book for guidance.
