“Audits can be life-changing experiences,” said Lisa Keilty, CMP, HCC, president /owner of the pharma compliance consulting firm PMC2 (Professional Meeting Compliance Connection) during a session on audit preparation and standard operating procedures at the 2013 Pharma Forum in Orlando. The Forum was co-organized by MeetingsNet/medical and The Center for Business Intelligence.
