What is being billed as the healthcare industry’s first Internet radio documentary to expose the inner workings of investigatory audits is scheduled to air live on Thursday, June 2 at 1:30 p.m. EST.

Titled Audit Nation: The Documentary, Exposing Investigatory Audits, the 90-minute broadcast will reveal investigatory audit practices and the consequences of government and private auditing, the risks these audits pose to organizations, and the regulatory implications facilities and providers currently face nationwide. Access to broadcast, sponsored by DoctorsManagement, is complimentary.

“Nationally recognized healthcare statistician Frank Cohen of DoctorsManagement will lead you through the labyrinth of rules that have become to many an undeclared war on America’s physicians,” said Chuck Buck, RACmonitor’s publisher and the executive producer of Monitor Mondays. “We are bringing some of the nation’s leading authorities to the live broadcast in a documentary format.” 

Also participating in the documentary will be… 

  • Healthcare attorney David Glaser with Fredrikson & Byron, who will speak to the legal risks and challenges that audits present to the healthcare industry.  
  • Ronald Hirsch, M.D., vice president of Accretive Physician Advisory Services, who will talk about investigatory audits from a physician’s point of view while providing a global perspective on the importance of advocacy.  
  • Pat Marion, a principal at Compliance Concepts, Inc. and formerly of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) Office of Inspector General (OIG), who will discuss regulatory challenges associated with working through the process once an audit begins.  
  • Sean Weiss with DoctorsManagement, who will report on the hard cost of being unprepared for an audit versus the relatively lesser cost of when facilities and providers are prepared. 

“We are most grateful to DoctorsManagement for their commitment and courage to sponsor this important broadcast,” Buck said. “In many ways we’ll be exploring a subject that rarely receives this kind of comprehensive coverage.”
