Identify and Prevent Compliance Mistakes in Small Physician Practices

Compliance guidelines and regulations for physician practices are numerous and sometimes confusing.  Most small physician practices cannot afford to employ a full-time compliance officer – and the person handling compliance duties is often overwhelmed with other responsibilities. Many times things “slip through the cracks” even if they are understood.

Join this information-packed audio conference by expert speaker by Kim Garner Huey to identify the most common compliance mistakes made by small physician practices and learn how to avoid making them in your practice. Draw on Kim’s vast experience in audit, training and oversight and create a robust compliance system for your practice.
