Study: Home health care suffers when doctors fail to communicate

Home health care professionals know it. And with the recent publication of a study in the Journal of General Internal Medicine, physicians, patients, patients' families and others might understand it as well: miscommunication by doctors can lead to negative health outcomes for seniors that result in hospital readmissions.

Health care fraud investigation results in two Austin arrests

Two Austin psychologists and a Houston physician are among the more 35 Texans charged in what federal prosecutors say is the largest medical fraud investigation in the Department of Justice's history. More than 400 people nationwide are accused of improperly prescribing and distributing opioids and other powerful drugs.

Common medical billing errors that could lead to fraud

Health care fraud is a growing concern for many medical and health care providers in Texas. Some providers seek to profit off unlawful activities to increase their profits. However, many health care providers are honest and under heavy scrutiny and sanctions because of the wrongful actions of others. Some potential causes of health care fraud are the result of mistakes in the billing process. Many of those errors are avoidable with the right processes and checks and balances in place.
