Register today and save $100. You won't want to miss out on this year's dynamic conference and our very special keynote speaker!
This year's conference will be held at the beautiful San Diego Convention Center on April 11-13, 2014.
Augmenting general sessions that will examine the changing dynamics of the health care marketplace, physician payment reform and the roll-out of state health benefit exchanges under the Affordable Care Act, this year's Academy will offer breakout sessions that focus on leadership development and practice management. With a choice of offerings in each area during the scheduled breakout periods, attendees can customize a track in one area or “mix and match” workshops.
Leadership development breakouts include sessions designed to equip physicians with skill sets – from interpersonal skills such as communicating effectively, resolving conflicts, and working collaboratively with others, to administrative skills such as meeting management and financial oversight – needed to succeed as leaders of medical groups, medical staffs or other organizations. Additional presentations will focus on medical practice leadership techniques relevant to physicians and practice managers alike. A special session will examine the specific challenges women physicians face in achieving leadership positions.
Practice management workshops will address a wide range of topics including reimbursement coding, techniques to improve both patient and staff satisfaction, employment law issues, electronic health records, tools to improve financial success, insurance provider networks and reimbursement, and more.
