MINNEAPOLIS, Dec. 16, 2015 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Over the past 20 years, the Health Care Compliance Association's (HCCA) Compliance Institute has gained a deserved reputation for providing the latest need-to-know health care enforcement, regulatory, and compliance information for thousands of compliance professionals across the United States. Keeping up this well-known tradition, HCCA announced today that U.S. Assistant Attorney General Leslie Caldwell, HHS Inspector General Daniel R. Levinson, and James G. Sheehan, Chief, Charities Bureau-New York Attorney General, will keynote the 20th Annual Compliance Institute, Monday, April 18, 2016. HHS Office of Civil Rights Director Jocelyn Samuels will headline the general session on Tuesday, April 19, 2016, followed by the leading expert on the impact of generational change and its impact on the marketplace, Generational Insights President Cam Marston. The 2016 Compliance Institute will be held April 17-20, 2016, at the ARIA in Las Vegas, Nevada.
"There is no industry in America that is scrutinized more heavily than health care," said HCCA CEO Roy Snell. "The public, press, politicians, and regulators all watch the industry closely. At the same time, the agenda of the meeting shows that those charged with enforcement are well aware of the role compliance plays in preventing, finding and fixing problems. They come to help us do our jobs more effectively and better ensure the integrity of the health care system."
