Product Description

Still have the "It won't happen to us" mentality when it comes to compliance issues? Unfortunately, it can happen and it does…

Recently we've seen a dramatic increase in regulatory issues for a provider group that has received very little scrutiny in its relatively short history. Your institution can't afford to take a wait-and-see attitude before you have a compliance framework in place.
