Damaris Medina’s article, titled “Identifying Risks and Finding Shelter in an Urgent Care Compliance Program,” was published in the January 2014 issue of The Journal of Urgent Care Medicine, the official journal of the Urgent Care Association of America (UCAOA).
From the Article:
“The health care industry is in the throes of a dynamic regulatory enforcement climate. Federal and state regulators and third-party payers continue to closely examine the books and operations of health care providers. This high level of scrutiny will only increase with the continuing roll-out of health care reform, which is expected to accelerate the current boom in urgent care.”
