Like every physician practice, academic radiology practices must pay heed to all governmental regulations. The federal False Claims Act serves to protect US taxpayers and requires strict adherence. Violations, often brought forth by whistleblowers, can carry steep financial repercussions.

PURPOSE: Medical insurance fraud has caused huge losses to countries around the world, and public reporting has become an important means to combat medical insurance fraud. The attitude of medical insurance fraud whistleblowers affects people's reporting behavior, and understanding people's attitude toward medical insurance fraud whistleblowers provides a basis for further improving the system and policy of public participation in medical insurance fund supervision. METHODS: We adopted the questionnaire method to conduct a national cross-sectional survey of the Chinese public and analyzed the data using Chi-square tests, Fisher's exact tests, and binary logistic regression models. RESULTS: A total of 837 respondents were included, and 81.8% of the population had a supportive attitude toward medical insurance fraud whistleblowers, with gender, whether they had used medical insurance reimbursement, and present life satisfaction being statistically significant (P < 0.05). CONCLUSION: The public is generally supportive of medical insurance fraud whistleblowers, and women, those who have used medical insurance for reimbursement, and those who are satisfied with their lives are more likely to be supportive of medical insurance fraud whistleblowers.

The Regional Councils of Medicine are responsible for the first instance evaluation of ethical-professional complaints against physicians in each federation state. The relevance of the study is based on the importance of evaluating the professional profile of the reported physician, the characteristics of the complaints, and the judging body performance. This study assessed 966 complaints against physicians made to the Regional Council of Medicine of Minas Gerais (CRM/MG) from 2012 to 2017. There was no difference in the average age of the professionals or the period of professional practice. Gynecology, Internal Medicine, General Surgery, and Plastic Surgery comprised most of the complaints regarding medical specialties. The non-specialty reports reached 323 (34%) cases and predominated over the years studied. The number of acquittals was relatively high, in a total of 535 cases, in which the Regional Council of Medicine of Minas Gerais (CRM/MG) considered the complaints unfounded. The hypothesis of a certain corporativism of the CRM did not seem viable since thirty cases received harsher punishments, and among them, eight were removed from professional practice. Some professionals were reported more than once. It is worth noting that the number of recidivists and cases progressively decreased from 2012 to 2017.

Los Consejos Regionales de Medicina son responsables de la evaluación en primera instancia de las denuncias ético-profesionales contra médicos en cada estado de la federación. La relevancia del estudio se basa en la importancia de evaluar el perfil profesional del médico denunciado, las características de las denuncias y la actuación del órgano juzgador. Este estudio evaluó 966 denuncias contra médicos presentadas al Consejo Regional de Medicina de Minas Gerais (CRM/MG) de 2012 a 2017. No hubo diferencias en la edad media de los profesionales ni en el período de ejercicio profesional. Ginecología, Medicina Interna, Cirugía General y Cirugía Plástica englobaron la mayoría de las denuncias relativas a especialidades médicas. Las denuncias de no especialidad alcanzaron 323 (34%) casos y predominaron a lo largo de los años estudiados. El número de absoluciones fue relativamente elevado, en un total de 535 casos, en los que el Consejo Regional de Medicina de Minas Gerais (CRM/MG) consideró infundadas las denuncias. La hipótesis de un cierto corporativismo del CRM no pareció viable, ya que treinta casos recibieron castigos más severos y, entre ellos, ocho fueron apartados del ejercicio profesional. Algunos profesionales fueron denunciados más de una vez. Cabe destacar que el número de reincidentes y de casos disminuyó progresivamente de 2012 a 2017.

A relevância do presente estudo se fundamenta na importância de se avaliar o perfil profissional do denunciado, as características das denúncias e o desempenho do órgão julgador. O presente estudo avaliou 966 denúncias contra médicos, feitas ao Conselho Regional de Medicina de Minas Gerais (CRM/MG), de 2012 a 2017. Não houve diferença com relação à média de idade do profissional, nem com relação ao tempo de exercício profissional. No que diz respeito às especialidades médicas (tabela 5), as áreas de Ginecologia, Clínica Médica, Cirurgia Geral e Cirurgia Plástica compreenderam grande parte das denúncias. Os denunciados sem especialidade alcançaram o no número de 323 (34%) e predominaram. O número de absolvições foi relativamente alto, num total de 535 denunciados, nos quais o Conselho Regional de Medicina de Minas Gerais (CRM/MG) considerou as acusações infundadas. A hipótese de certo corporativismo do CRM, não pareceu viável, visto que trinta casos receberam punição mais severa, dentre os quais, oito cassações do exercício profissional. Alguns profissionais foram denunciados mais de uma vez. Vale observar que o número de profissionais reincidentes, bem como o número de processos decaiu progressivamente, de 2012 a 2017.

Sexual violence with its enormous negative consequences has become an epidemic most especially among the young populations. An effective danger-proof reporting system is necessary for curbing this menace including use of the internal whistleblowing mechanism. The study employed a concurrent (parallel) mixed method descriptive design for explaining the sexual violence experiences of university students, the intention of staff and students to blow the whistle, and their preferred whistleblowing strategies. A total of 167 students and 42 members of staff (69% males and 31% females, respectively) were randomly selected from four academic departments (50%) of a university of technology in Southwest Nigeria. An adapted questionnaire containing three vignettes on sexual violence and a focus group discussion guide were used for data collection. We discovered that 16.1% of the students reported to have experienced sexual harassment, 12.3% had attempted rape, and 2.6% had experienced rape. Tribe (Likelihood-Ratio, LR = 11.16; p = .004) and sex (χ2 = 12.65; p = .001) were strongly associated with sexual violence experiences. Also, 50% staff and 47% students had high intention. Regression analysis showed that industrial and production engineering students will be 2.8 times more likely to have intention to internally blow the whistle more than other students (p = .03; 95% CI [1.1, 6.97]). Female staff had 5.73 odds of intention more than male staff (p = .05; [1.02, 32.1]). Also, we observed that senior staff will 31% less likely blow the whistle than the junior staff (Adjusted Odd Ratio, AOR = 0.04; [0.00, 0.98]; p = .05). In our qualitative findings, courage was mentioned as a factor necessary for blowing the whistle while anonymous reporting was emphasized for successful whistleblowing. However, the students preferred external whistleblowing. The study has implication for the establishment of sexual violence internal whistleblowing reporting system in higher education institutions.
