The 340B Drug Pricing Program provides eligible hospitals and health care organizations with access to one of the deepest discounts on pharmaceuticals in the country. But as the program continues to evolve, it’s incurring intense and increasing scrutiny from regulators and pharmaceutical manufacturers. The health care auditor plays a critical role in helping to identify and mitigate the increased risk and uncertainty surrounding this program. In this session, industry leaders will provide a regulatory outlook for 340B and a toolkit to help organizations strengthen existing audit programs and prepare for future changes.
Keynote: Hacking our trust: What health care auditors need to know
August 30, 11:00 a.m.–Noon
Glenn Wilson, senior manager, Deloitte & Touche LLP

An unfortunate truth is that cyber criminals are changing, evolving, and adapting faster than ever before. The tools and technologies protecting organizations today may not be sufficient for the threats of tomorrow. Attacks against the financial and physical safety of patients, employees, and the organization are becoming bolder and more difficult to detect … until it’s too late.

Core information security principles need to be improved and additional vigilance to understand new and emerging attack vectors should be embraced. Join in on a discussion focused on the current hacking landscape and how it’s evolving to meet the demands of the dark market.
