In 90 minutes, you’ll get advice on surviving a RAC audit from the following two experts:

First, Jane Pine Wood, a health-law attorney who specializes in regulatory and compliance issues, provides critical details about the RAC audit program: what it is, how audits are performed, what areas are at risk of being audited, and more. She’ll walk you through the process, starting the moment your lab is notified it’s about to be audited. Using case-study examples, Ms. Wood will explain the procedures your lab should follow when responding to a RAC audit.

The second speaker, Tom Rehwald, CFO at InCyte Pathology LLC, will share what happened when a RAC audit was conducted at his lab. He’ll provide the practical insights and lessons-learned that come from taking part in an actual audit. Find out how you can stay one step ahead of the auditors. Get a better understanding of the process, including the potential pitfalls you’ll need to watch out for when responding to the results of your audit.
