In May 2022, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) Office of Inspector General (OIG) published a report claiming that 25 percent of Medicare patients experienced adverse events during their October 2008 hospital stay.

“That’s a staggering number,” said John K. Hall, MD, in an email to RACmonitor. “So, what does it mean, and what should providers expect from other auditors and government agencies?”

During the next live edition of Monitor Mondays, physician and attorney Dr. Hall will review the report and offer suggestions to prepare if the OIG comes knocking at your door.

  • Monday Rounds: Ronald Hirsch, MD, vice president of R1 RCM, will be making his Monday Rounds.
  • The RAC Report: Healthcare attorney Knicole Emanuel, partner at the law firm of Practus, will report the latest news about auditors.
