UPDATE 3/16/2020: For the health & well-being of our presenters, our customers, and our team members and under the guidance of the CDC, the Protenus team has decided to transform our PANDAS conference in May into a virtual event this year. We will be issuing full refunds to those that have already registered and are working to update this event page to reflect the new format shortly. We are hoping everyone will continue to reserve the time (9AM to 5PM ET on May 12th and 13th) on their calendars, or register now, so they join us for our virtual event this year! 

The fourth annual PANDAS (People and Analytics) Live event brings together the premier healthcare compliance professionals from across the country. We come together once a year to exchange best practices in patient privacy monitoring and controlled substance diversion surveillance, participate in discussions and forums at the leading edge of data analytics in healthcare, and build an active community that is the driving force for improving healthcare compliance standards and practices.

Please note: PANDAS Live 2020 is a closed event for PANDAS members and special guests. Your registration may not be approved if you did not receive an invitation to the event.
