The Health Care Compliance Association is hosting its annual conference this week — and hosting it in Boston, hometown of Radical Compliance, so we’ve been on scene all week to hear keen compliance insights and score some free food.
As usual, we’ve pulled together a selection of social media posts so those not attending can see what went on, what was said, and what good points are worth pondering, even if you weren’t here to ponder them with your peers.
First, a view of the crowd. As you can see, it was large: HCCA estimates attendance at 3,200 people.

It’s all about the analytics, people. We’ve talked about this.
#HCCAci 205 Data Analytics Rev Compliance & Auditing. Andy Kins & Kate Welti from Mayo. “Examining data sets to draw conclusions, don’t let analytics be intimidating.” Then they showed a neat, colorful, complicated visualization easily developed in Tableau. #gratefulformyd&ateam

This is no joke. I attended another session where a whistleblower told of confronting a suspected fraudster, who turned on the tears to throw the whistleblower off the trail.

Words of wisdom from a Massachusetts regulator about data privacy breaches.
“As data becomes cheaper to collect and store by personal entities and as the value of data increases in the market, the consequences of a breach are that much more intense,” said Sara Cable of the Massachusetts AG Office. #HCCAci

And my own tribute to Roy Snell, recently retired head of HCCA and SCCE, who was at the conference to sign copies of his book The Accidental Compliance Professional.
