“Bruce is a proven leader with palpable integrity, keen intellect, and wisdom that are requisite in the audit arena,” stated Dan Rounds Immersive President. “Our clients’ requests for innovative audit and control studies around data quality, governance, program performance, in addition to those that are driven by regulation like HIPAA and Meaningful Use, have grown tremendously in the past twelve months. We are delighted to have Bruce at the helm to support our clients’ compliance requirements and performance objectives through high-value, structured and disciplined audit and control solutions and advisory services.”
“Today’s healthcare delivery system is the complex world of patient safety, privacy, electronic health records, 340b drugs, compliance and massive data management. It’s dynamic and complex. Thus, there is a great need for controls that work and bring value to the healthcare provider and the patient. Healthcare is all about cost and patient services,” shared Kincaid. “In my new role, I will be leading Immersive’s evidence-based audits and advisory services offerings tailored to our clients’ needs. Our solutions streamline system effectiveness, advance prudent use of data and improve governance through the use of appropriate data, benchmarking and business intelligence. Our solutions are created in many system environments including forensic privilege. I am excited to be part of the Immersive team and bring these critical services to our clients.”
