Medical & Healthcare Services Workshop

Join us October 23 for this livestream event!

Taking care of business.

This year has been particularly rough on the healthcare industry and may have changed the way we do healthcare forever. What does that mean for healthcare entities? What are the risks and opportunities in this new normal? This workshop will give you some unique perspectives on where we are and where we’re going and help you navigate the road to recovery.

We're bringing the workshop to you!

The workshop will look a little different this year, but you’ll get the same great content you’ve come to expect from LCPA events. Here’s how it will work:

  • The speakers will be “live” from their location, so you’ll see them on-screen next to their presentation.
  • All materials will be distributed electronically, ensuring you have the most up-to-date information that you can easily save for future reference.
  • The platform is interactive – you’ll have to ability to ask questions of the speaker.
  • The CPE verification process is simple and we’ve built in breaks so you can take a stretch

So make plans to join us from the comfort of your favorite wifi-enabled location. Register today!

Fraud is often at its most virulent during downturns and crises.

This session will address key changes organizations can make to lower their risk of fraud.
