Compliance Lawyer track added to the 18th Annual HCCA Compliance Institute

March 30-April 2, 2014, San Diego, California

MINNEAPOLIS, Jan. 30, 2014 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Health care lawyers who have experience with compliance programs and the compliance officer role are better equipped to guide and inform their clients. For this reason, the Health Care Compliance Association's (HCCA) 18th Annual Compliance Institute is offering the Compliance Lawyer track. It will be led by 30 experienced and knowledgeable lawyers from inside and outside the government

"Many people who have no experience in the function of a compliance program or the role of a compliance officer are advising in-house and outside counsel about the compliance function. In this track in-house and outside counsel will learn about the skills of the 'Compliance Lawyer.'  In-house and outside counsel with an interest in the compliance field will also come away with a wealth of ideas," said HCCA Chief Executive Officer Roy Snell.

A critical component of any IoT project is what to do with all the data being generated. This data needs to be captured, processed, structured, and stored in a way to facilitate different kinds of queries.
