Following is an excerpt:

Despite Slavitt's optimism, however, a Bloomberg BNA article notes that concerns linger, particularly about the potential for government audits. George Breen, an attorney with District of Columbia-based law firm Epstein Becker & Green, tells Bloomberg that healthcare organizations must be prepared for "aggressive payer audits, both private and public."

Mr. Breen was previously quoted in Bloomberg BNA Health Care Daily Report, in “ICD-10 Works, but Concerns Remain Over Audits, Productivity.”
