The healthcare community relies on data security and integrity from its labs and vendors to protect patients’ privacy and to keep doctors and hospitals functioning to the best of their ability – for the sake of healing people and saving lives.
When a company posing as a problem-solving turns into a predator, and gets caught in the act, the situation can become heated, especially if the federal government is involved in a scheme and coverup. But when the predator and those involved in covering up fraud put a company out of business that is helping doctors with early detection of cancer, we should all be outraged. Cancer detection and treatment are challenging enough without someone causing the loss – for profit – of a solid company working to support doctors and their patients. Don’t just be offended, use your voice. Take action.
That is what Michael Daugherty did. He didn’t just fight back for the sake of his business; he became an advocate, and even managed to maintain his sense of humor and to learn to enjoy flipping the table over on those doing harm. Kudos, Mike!
We interviewed the President/CEO of Atlanta’s LabMD, Michael J. Daugherty, and his story was and still is every bit as dramatic and outrageous as it sounds. This broadcast sets us up to learn what has happened since, but make sure to pick up a copy of The Devil Inside the Beltway in addition to watching his series on YouTube.
You can purchase the book in print or the Kindle version here on Amazon.
You will learn a lot that may help you avoid or correct a situation involving a predator of another type – as they come in all shapes, sizes…and wear different hats. This is more riveting than any story in the business news and more compelling than most legal thrillers. This real story is close to home and it could happen to you – to your business and to your family.
Follow Mike on Twitter for compelling updates on data security breaches and news about the failed coverup by Tiversa and the FTC (Federal Trade Commission.)
Even better, when you see foul play and believe fraudulent conduct is afoot, let the authorities know and taking nothing for granted! For an entertaining play by play, check out Devil’s Episode Two The Game Begins and Episode Five It’s all Political. (Recommended that you watch all from the beginning but these are our favorites).
