Legal healthcare compliance is an ever-changing landscape, especially in 2020 in the age of Covid-19.

We’ll cover current enforcement issues and hear directly from the offices of the Massachusetts and U.S. Attorneys General. We’ll also review privacy issues, among other hot topics, and conclude with a riveting update on how the election will shape healthcare compliance.
