Upcoming podcast — A Hospital Compliance Conversation with Deborah Lakin
If you’re a hospital leader with any stake in your facility’s therapy services program, then you probably have an understanding of the huge role that compliance plays in its success. While this is true of all service lines, it can be particularly challenging for therapy services, including physical, occupational and speech therapy, due to the unique regulations and operational requirements involved. To better navigate these waters, hospitals can benefit from leveraging the knowledge and experience of experts in the field.
That’s why we’re excited to share that one of Alliance Physical Therapy Partners’ dedicated leaders will be appearing on the Rural Health Leadership Radio podcast hosted by Bill Auxier on February 25, 2020. The wide-ranging conversation will cover topics important to the regulatory landscape for hospitals in the upcoming year with a specific focus on the needs of facilities in rural areas.
