There is nothing like D.C. in the spring. The Healthcare Compliance Association (HCCA) held its annual Compliance Institute in DC for 2017 and almost 3,000 of the nation’s compliance officers/managers gathered at the Gaylord National Harbor for three days. As has been the case for years, the conference was spectacular.
It is refreshing to be around so many people who share the same goal - compliance and quality care.
HCCA Compliance Institute begins this weekend, and year after year, it never disappoints! At ProviderTrust,
meeting new faces and reuniting with friends has always been our favorite part of this enjoyable event.
As we prep for our journey to the National Harbor in Maryland, we made it a priority to put together some resources for you - in the event you get to go - so that you get the most out of your HCCA CI 2017 experience!
Take a look below to start planning, and be sure to say hello if you see us.Read More
