Our goal is to show you exactly how to maximize the role of the physician advisor in your hospital through case studies, strategy sessions, panels and interactive workshops. Join us this March for the only annual event with 100% new content designed to improve your physician advisor’s role in managing denials, documentation, and physician behavior. This event offers a maximum of 16.25 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™ for physicians and 19.5 contact hours for nurses.

Maximizing the role of the physician advisor is a collaborative project. That’s why we have gathered highly experienced Chief Medical Officers, Medical Directors, Physician Advisors, and Case Management leaders to show you how they work together to create successful programs at their organizations. During the sessions and networking activities, you will have many opportunities to meet the speakers as well as the other participants. We brag that our conferences help each participant to build new relationships that last well beyond the closing session.

Every session, panel, networking break, and workshop has been designed to optimize the networking experience for you. We believe very strongly that networking begins as soon as you arrive at the conference, and we do every thing that we can to help you create new relationships with everyone – from featured speakers to other colleagues from hospitals across the country.
