Welcome to the Great Women in Compliance Podcast, co-hosted by Lisa Fine and Mary Shirley.

Welcome back to the second episode in a two-part series on Healthcare Compliance, this time with Melanie Sponholz Chief Compliance Officer WCP Healthcare.

We discuss Melanie’s unique story starting out in non-Compliance roles and of course eventually finding her Compliance destiny. Along the way, Mel has lived in a large number of cities and feels comfortable with the idea of re-locating, noting the benefits this can have for one’s career and broadening your mind.

We talk about data privacy in Healthcare Compliance as well as the characteristics that make someone successful in Healthcare Compliance. This episode will therefore likely be of special interest to anyone looking to transition into Healthcare Compliance.

We like to share advice and tips on the podcast via our learned guests but some things don’t have immediate answers, including some aspects of what we’ve canvassed today. If you’d like to share your thoughts on the issues raised, we invite you to connect with us at GWICpod@gmail.com.
