MBDS General Membership Dinner Meeting

with Bryant Truitt, MBA, CCS, CFE
Embezzlement Can’t Happen to Me! Or Can it?

It’s not possible to stop embezzlement, fraud, waste and abuse entirely. However, practice owners can (and should) learn techniques for risk reduction, how to recognize the early warning signs, action steps to take, and how to act on concerns.

Drawing from 20+ years’ experience, Bryant Truitt, CFE shares insights into the critical situations that can affect the business side of the practice that should be reviewed to determine the next action steps before experiencing a loss. Attendees will receive a Vulnerability Index for assessing risk factors and will review techniques that can be implemented in the practice to lower risk.

Bryant infuses each interactive, open format presentation with passion, fun, and actual cases while customizing the topic to meet the specific needs and questions of the audience. New schemes and old ones with new angles are appearing daily with the sole purpose of creating opportunities for misapplication, misappropriation, and inappropriate activity. Attend this fast-paced, hard hitting course to gain knowledge of practice operations that can assist doctors in achieving their goals for exceptional patient care, worry-free team member relationships, and a welldeserved retirement.
