Current and recent OEI Boston work includes the following subjects:
Public Health: Our work has examined oversight of human subjects protections, clinical research trials, tobacco, and grant funding for research into toxicology.
Health Care Quality: We have evaluated the oversight system for ensuring that patients in hospitals receive quality care, Medicare's response to beneficiary complaints in nursing
homes, and the extent to which hospitals purchase compounded pharmaceuticals from registered compounders.
Health Care Financing and Delivery: Our work has addressed such topics as access to durable medical equipment under Medicare's competitive bidding program, the accuracy

About the OEI: The Office of Evaluation and Inspections (OEI) is one component of the Office of Inspector General.
OEI's mission is to protect the integrity of our Department's programs, as well as the health and welfare of the programs' beneficiaries. We do this by conducting evaluations that provide timely,
useful, and reliable information and recommendations to decision makers in Congress and the Executive Branch, as well as to the general public. We evaluate the programs run by the Centers for
Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS), the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the National Institutes of Health (NIH), and other agencies. Our reports recommend ways to improve the
effectiveness and efficiency of these programs, protect their beneficiaries, and stop fraud, waste, and abuse.
