Episode 5: Exclusion Screening


  Tripp Matthews, Ashley Hudson, Erin Archer

In this very educational episode, Erin Archer of Exclusion Screening, LLC and Ashley Hudson of Liles Parker PLLC educate me on Exclusion Screening - both the company and the Requirement. We discuss the difference between Exclusion Screening and a background check; what constitutes an exclusion; the perils of employing an excluded individual; and which individuals should be screened.

This conversation is a great primer for the webinar scheduled for late June, which will be led by these two attorneys.

This engagement was so informative that we are going to add this as a monthly podcast episode entitled "Legally Blonde" which will cover all aspects of Legal matters throughout the healthcare industry.
