The American Health Law Association‘s “Health Law Watch”, first published in 2018, provides analysis of key legal and operational challenges facing the health care industry. The new 2021 edition includes a chapter on Fraud Enforcement in the Digital Arena – Electronic Health Records. Authored by Flannery | Georgalis partner, Colin Callahan, along with co-authors Chris Sabis and Deborah Farringer, the chapter discusses the now pervasiveness of electronic health records (“EHR”), and how EHR-related fraud has, in turn, become a top priority of the Department of Justice.
Prior to joining F|G as the partner-in-charge of F|G’s Pittsburgh office, Colin served as a federal prosecutor for the Western District of Pennsylvania from 2012 to 2019. In that capacity, he led some of the largest fraud investigations in the region and also served as the Office’s affirmative civil enforcement coordinator.
