Healthcare Auditor's Handbook
Your organization's success is measured by many standards.
None is more important than the integrity and accuracy of data.
That's why your job as an auditor is so critical.
Auditing and compliance professionals are under significant pressure to demonstrate—at any given moment—that their organization is in step with the myriad rules and regulations from their state, OIG compliance guidance standards, U.S. Sentencing Guidelines, and the Sarbanes-Oxley Act, as well as the good business practices your organization has developed over time.
Maintaining an effective auditing program is the only way to ensure compliance with all of these expectations.
The Healthcare Auditor's Handbook, HCPro's book and CD-ROM resource, will help you develop a logical audit process and follow it from beginning to end.
