Thank You, Everyone!

The New England Healthcare Internal Auditors (NEHIA) and the Healthcare Financial Management Association (HFMA) MA-RI Chapter would like to thank all of those who made the in-person 3-day Compliance and Internal Audit Conference a success!

Thank you to our more than 75 participants who joined us for one or more days.  We hope you enjoyed the presentations from expert presenters from healthcare compliance, privacy, security, and of course, internal auditing.

Many thanks to our speakers for pulling together such informative presentations and our conference sponsors, BerryDunn, Deloitte & Touche LLP, and Protenus for their support.  With 25 speakers presenting on 17 topics, we had a great lineup for the conference this year!

Finally, thank you to the NEHIA and HFMA MA-RI board members and planning committee members who effectively collaborated to facilitate the planning of the conference.  Special thanks to the HFMA MA-RI chapter administrators who supported all the conference logistics and Mystic Marriott hotel staff – we could not have done this without you!

We hope to see everyone next year!  Have a safe and happy holiday season.
