The CFE is the “gold standard” certification for fraud investigation. Way to go, Wendy!
Embezzlement’s Biggest Myths (continued)
Last month we started an article outlining the things most doctors misunderstood about embezzlement. The online news site saw the first part of the article and asked if we would develop it into a piece suitable for its online publication, which we were happy to do.
You can read the full article on DrBicuspid’s web site here.
This Month in Our Web Store
The boss said make it good, so we did. Until December 31, everything in our web store is 50% off the regular price. Check it out at
Also, we should mention that the prices for several of our investigative services will be increasing on January 1, so if you think you need us and want to lock in 2015 pricing, please contact us before December 31.
A Note From Our CEO
With the Thanksgiving turkey eaten, and with Christmas decorations erupting everywhere, it’s the time of year when I normally become a bit introspective.
It’s been a phenomenal year for Prosperident; we have progressed in so many areas. Our computer horsepower has quintupled, our investigative prowess keeps growing, and we have reduced the average time for completing an investigation by almost 25%.
We are also excited about our involvement with Shieldr — this affordably-priced embezzlement monitoring software is now testing in a few dozen offices. The Shieldr programming team continues to expand the practice management software that Shieldr can work with (it now monitors Eaglesoft, Dentrix and Open Dental systems, with Practiceworks and Softdent integration imminent). In addition to embezzlement monitoring, Shieldr virtually eliminates a doctor’s dependence on printed reports by elegantly organizing all important financial information on your smartphone.
Even more exciting for me is the people with whom I am privileged to work. Prosperident has collected a team of incredibly talented and motivated people who make working here a joy. In 2015, we have promoted several people into new positions and all have moved capably into their new roles. We have made several excellent new hires.
Sadly, we have also lost some friends this year, including one of our “originals,”Dr. Roel Wyman, who passed away a few months ago.
On behalf of everyone at Prosperident, I hope that you and your family have a wonderful (and embezzlement free) holiday season.
David Harris, Chief Executive Officer
