Vidant Health’s seven-year battle with the OIG over malnutrition

Today’s show is hosted by ACDIS Associate Editorial Director Linnea Archibald, Director of Programming Rebecca Hendren, Editor and Product Coordinator Karla Accorto, and Associate Editors Jess Fluegel and Joshua Raposa. The show provides a glimpse behind the scenes of all things ACDIS in a more casual, conversational format than our other podcast series. It also features a conversation with Vaughn Matacale, MD, CCDS, director of the physician advisor group at ECU Health in Greenville, North Carolina, about Vidant Health’s seven-year battle with the OIG over malnutrition denials.

Our intro and outro music for the ACDIS Podcast is “medianoche” by Dee Yan-Kay and our ad music is “Take Me Higher” by Jahzzar, both obtained from the Free Music Archive.
