New Developments Affecting Health Care Director/Officer Accountability

Overview


Michael Peregrine wrote this bylined article about recent developments imposing greater accountability on health care sector corporate officers and directors. Writing that the developments show “an increased sensitivity to perceived responsibility of officers and directors for corporate conduct, and a greater willingness to hold those leaders accountable for organizational malfeasance the government believes occurred during their tenure,” Mr. Peregrine predicted that regulators “increasingly believe attributing responsibility to the highest corporate levels will enhance compliance with federal health care laws.”
