Episode 123: What it Means to be Compliant, and Are You at Risk?

Today, lets talk about how to put in an ounce of prevention to avoid a pound of pain. Again, we did not go to school for this. On this podcast, Brian reminds his audience that Compliance is mandatory and is constantly changing – it is your responsibility to get the correct data and to stay on top of it. Tune in to learn what policies & procedures you need to put into place in order to apply Compliance to protect yourself, your patients, and your practice.   

Key Takeaways/Points
