How legitimate database providers are different from those who fake it.

September 24, 2013

Host Jim Obermayer interviews database provider expert Tim Slevin of Healthcare Data Solutions on the difficult subject of database integrity. 

Obermayer said, “There appears to be a substantial increase in database providers that make quality promises without delivering, and in some instances boarding on fraud.” In this interview Tim Slevin will discuss the quality standards database providers should deliver to be considered legitimate.
