What MGMA16 attendees had to say:

I was blown away by the up-to-the-minute regulatory information relating to MACRA. I can't think of a better way to increase my practice management skills, see and experience new and innovative product offerings and stay current with multiple source regulatory issues than by attending MGMA Annual Conferences.
~ Deborah Lief, RN, COO

For the past 15 years, I have relied on MGMA to guide me and our health system to effectively prepare for and navigate the unknown future of the healthcare landscape. This year's annual conference didn't disappoint. The educational sessions I attended were spot on. I networked with colleagues from around the country.
~ Todd M. Fowler

The diverse offerings of classes and topics were second to none. It doesn't matter if you are a first-time attendee with little practice management experience or one with extensive experience you can gain useful knowledge to move your organization forward.
~ Mark Morgan

The scope and breadth of information, content knowledge and peer-to-peer interaction within the field of practice management, without a doubt is driven by the excellence that is MGMA year after year.
