The New Mexico HIMSS Chapter hosted an event with Michael Herrick as our featured speaker. His presentation, Three Easy Ways to Fail a HIPAA Audit was very informative and highly engaging. His command of the subject matter was impressive and his ability to connect this very specific subject to the attendees was remarkable.
