MGMA 2016 Financial Management and Payer Contracting Conference

Feb. 28–March 1, 2016 | Orlando

ENHANCE YOUR KNOWLEDGE AND IMPROVE PRACTICE PERFORMANCE

Whether you’re new to practice management or have been in the field for several years, building and enhancing your financial acumen is essential for leading your organization. Financially stable practices require strong revenue-cycle management, optimal physician compensation plans, effective contract analysis and negotiation, and more. Today’s healthcare landscape also requires that practice administrators understand and prepare for value-based payments.

Interact and share contracting, reimbursement and risk-sharing challenges with other medical practice executives, chief financial officers, and financial management and payer contracting professionals. Together, you’ll learn what’s needed to transition to value-based contracts and how your practice can successfully manage risk and demonstrate the ability to reduce costs of care while maintaining high-quality outcomes.

Join your colleagues Feb. 28–March 1 in Orlando for the MGMA 2016 Financial Management and Payer Contracting Conference.

Registration coming soon!
