AAPC Conference Preview

AAPC’s Health Conference Connects the Business of Health Care

AAPC’s HEALTHCON, which will be held from April 13 to 16 in Nashville, Tennessee, will offer education and networking opportunities to a wide spectrum of medical professionals, from entry level to expert understanding. This national event will advance all those involved in health care, including coders, billers, payers, practice managers, attorneys, and physicians.

With more than 50 educational sessions (up to 18 CEUs), specialty ICD-10 training, and the ever-popular Anatomy Expo, this year’s event is shaping up to be AAPC’s biggest national conference yet. Also, HEALTHCON will introduce the Business of Healthcare Expo, which features information on financial management, compliance, marketing, and human resources.

Bill Gracey, CEO of BlueCross BlueShield Tennessee, will offer the opening keynote address and discuss what health care reform means to the whole industry, from the health plan to the provider. Other general sessions will include an exploration of ICD-10 implementation strategies, a panel discussion on legal trends and issues affecting health care, and an exposition on what you need to know about accountable care organizations.
