There are huge financial benefits when developing a niche in spine care that can’t be ignored. Being prepared for 2009 means that Spine Physicians & Administrators have to leverage a strategic plan to capitalize on new technology, lower implant costs, and deliver measured results.

The distinguished speaking faculty and expert panels provide best practices for your top priorities, including how:
+The University of California, San Francisco Medical Center saves millions on implant costs every year by leveraging a 9-step strategic sourcing process
+Cleveland Clinic Florida, Thomas Jefferson University Hospitals, and SpineNevada bring every clinical discipline to the table to advance patient care and operational management
+St. John’s Regional Hospital quantifies functional outcomes and provides analysis of the data for payers and patients
+The Medical College of Georgia capitalizes on direct marketing to build physician referrals
+The Heartland Spine & Specialty Hospital strategically evaluates its target audience before launching comprehensive marketing campaigns

We’ll examine benchmarking data from top providers, including freestanding spine centers, academic hospitals and community hospitals. Learn how:
+Reading Neck and Spine Center increases reimbursement through strategic negotiations with “unsatisfactory” payers
+Oregon Health & Science University simplifies outpatient management through patient navigators
+The University of Colorado operates a top-of-the-line, cohesive spine center with measured results
+Brain and NeuroSpine Clinic of Missouri attracts top doctors and builds physician loyalty

Dynamic Panel Discussions
The University of Washington, Orthopedic Specialists of the Carolinas, Pro-Care Spine Center, and Orthopedic Network News team up to share success in leveraging conservative treatments to increase spine center productivity. The panel examines how pain management programs keep surgeons away from non-surgical cases. The experts also look at the process for evaluating true advancements in technology.

The conference is designed to achieve a balance of delivering high quality content together with networking activities for the exchange of ideas and best practices. Networking activities take place during breakfast and lunch, as well as during key breaks throughout the agenda. We want you to leave this conference with an action list to develop and expand your Spine Center.
