We are all frustrated, but appreciate, the TSA process at our airports.  However, who among us doesn't feel safer because of it or would fly without the process?  Screening is critical in business as well.  We do background checks on employees before we hired them, but what do you know about the vendors we pay, who walks the halls of our health care systems and interacts with our patients?  Are they on a sanction list?  Are they criminals?  Do they have undisclosed relationships that result in conflicts of interest?  Are they shell companies?  Learn best practices and what can happen if you don't know your vendors.  Buyer beware!

Dale Tuttle
Partner / WithumSmith+Brown

Robotic Process Automation are some of the newest technologies transforming business today.  So, what are they and what can they do?  More importantly, how can they help health care providers and payers?  The primary use-case for these tools is to automate manual business processes involving IT systems that don't natively talk to one another.  Even in this highly technical age, manual business processes abound, with people literally connecting to one system, copying data, and then entering that data into another system.  This process is time-consuming, error-prone and isn't scalable.  Learn how these tools work (with a demo) and discuss how they can help both large and small health care systems.
