Those of us in compliance are busy people.
As compliance officers, we know all too well that our departments are often viewed as cost centers.
Recently we held a webinar titled “EMTALA Mistakes You Should Never Make,” where we had a vibrant Q&A following the presentation. Because we didn’t have time to answer all of the questions during the webinar, I went through and answered some of the more interesting questions from the audience.

Whether it’s an EMR or a compliance software solution, you want technology to do the work for you, not make you do extra work.
