Inspector General Daniel Levinson Headlines Live Broadcasts from HCCA

By


Daniel Levinson

U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) Inspector General Daniel R. Levinson will headline two days of live RACmonitor broadcasting from the Health Care Compliance Association’s 2014 Compliance Institute meeting scheduled for March 31 through April 2 in San Diego, Calif.

Levinson will serve as guest of the long-running Monitor Monday Internet radio broadcast. Levinson’s participation in Monitor Monday will mark his third appearance during a HCCA conference and his fifth time on the broadcast since 2012.

“Mr. Levinson will be joining us during our 11 a.m. PST broadcast on Monday, March 31,” said RACmonitor Publisher Chuck Buck, the broadcast’s executive producer and host. “We are pleased to welcome the inspector general to the broadcast and believe that his appearance will contribute to a broader understanding of the role of the HHS Office of Inspector General in uncovering waste, fraud and abuse in the healthcare system.”

Buck said that Monitor Monday will broadcast three additional half-hour programs on Monday and three 30-minute programs on Tuesday. Levinson is the keynote speaker at the HCCA’s Compliance Institute’s 18th annual conference.

“We are strategically broadening our broadcast content to encompass other important issues facing providers, such as privacy and security, auditing, and monitoring and quality of care,” Buck said. “We will also keep our audience up to speed with current topics — especially hot-button issues.”

Buck said the fundamental objective of offering broad-based content is to expand an “engagement between healthcare provider executives and Monitor Monday,” delivering content extending beyond issues regarding the recovery auditors. Buck will be joined by senior Monitor Monday correspondent Nancy Beckley, president and CEO for Nancy Beckley and Associates, who will co-host the broadcasts on both days.
