Now, that would be a great tune - a bit catchy, don't you think? Yes, rather silly and, as we know, with the size of the fines being handed out for "willful neglect," enabling and maintaining compliance is a serious matter.

No-one wants to deal with the coming pain as the Health and Human Services Office for Civil Rights amps up its enforcement audits.
If you are a healthcare provider with a desire to efficiently, effectively and inexpensively work through your compliance program, I have a prescription for you!
