LifeWatch: Five-year Corporate Integrity Agreement Success - Fully Completed

06/09/2017 | 10:01am EDT

ZUG, Switzerland, June 9, 2017 /PRNewswire/ --

LifeWatch AG (SIX Swiss Exchange: LIFE), a leading developer and provider of medical solutions and remote diagnostic monitoring services in the digital health market, is pleased to announce that LifeWatch Services, Inc., the US subsidiary of LifeWatch AG, has successfully completed the five- year term of its Corporate Integrity Agreement (CIA).

In March 2012, LifeWatch entered into a Settlement Agreement with the U.S. Department of Justice, Office of the Inspector General (OIG) agreeing to pay $18 million and operate under a five-year CIA. The case pertained to certain sales-related activities. During the five-year period, LifeWatch operated under the guidance of an Independent Review Organization and submitted reports of its compliance activities, on an annual basis, to the OIG. Today that additional oversight has come to an end with the successful completion of the five-year CIA. LifeWatch's CEO Dr. Stephan Rietiker commented, "We are pleased to be able to move past this chapter in the company's history. We are strongly committed to delivering diagnostic cardiac monitoring services with the highest levels of integrity, compliance and patient safety. The highest standards of ethics and compliance are part of LifeWatch's DNA, and we will continue to use established best practices developed during the OIG oversight as an integral part of maintaining a comprehensive and effective compliance program."
