Since I joined HCCA as a member in 2013 I have been exposed to many professional in various areas of health Care Compliance. I have gained so much knowledge and information about laws and regulations I didn’t know existed. I attended compliance academy and studied ever so hard to pass the certification exam and finally accomplished that in June 2014. I have attended the regional conferences and now the Institute. I always learn something new and/or become more confident in what knowledge I have with every experience. Networking with others across the country has also been a very valuable experience. Listening and sharing others experiences and getting know other professionals that share the same concerns is a very valuable educational experience you cannot get without attending conferences. This conference offers so many topics of interest that apply to my work it is difficult to choose which sessions to attend. All of th HCCA staff are very helpful and courteous and friendly. This has been a great experience so far and it is only day one!!!
