Washington, D.C., November 6, 2017 – Renée Brooker and Eva Gunasekera, both D.C.-based Counsel at our Firm, were speakers at a conference of over 400 healthcare industry participants at the Third Annual Healthcare Enforcement Compliance Institute (HECI), in Washington, D.C. The event is sponsored by the Health Care Compliance Association—a non-profit, individual membership association providing resources for ethics and compliance professionals in the United States. After distinguished careers at the Justice Department, both Renée and Eva are providing monitorship and compliance-related services to businesses, as well as representing whistleblowers in cases brought under the False Claims Act. Their experience spans the healthcare, pharmaceutical, defense, financial services, automotive, cigarette manufacturer and higher education industries.
Having been the Justice Department’s Senior Counsel for Health Care Fraud, Eva provided her deep insights on enforcement and compliance measures of long-term care in home health, hospice and nursing homes. At the conference, Renée participated in a panel exploring the role of compliance programs in False Claims Act investigations and litigation. Renée spoke about the need for companies to have meaningful and effective programs and do more than “just check boxes” on a compliance list. It matters that you proactively enforce your ethics and compliance standards and not just “talk the talk.”
