Those interested in learning best practices for leading a medical practice are encouraged to attend the Medical Group Management Association (MGMA) Annual Conference from September 30 to October 3. Held in Boston, the MGMA conference will inspire attendees to transform health care and revolutionize their organizations.
Keynote speaker Simon Sinek, author of Start With Why, Leaders Eat Last, Together Is Better, and Find Your Why, will discuss setting long-term goals and winning a competition that doesn’t end in “The Infinite Game: Leadership for Long-Term Success.” Other speakers include Mel Robbins, CNN commentator and author of The 5 Second Rule, who will present “The Five Second Rule: Keys to Confidence and Action at Work and Beyond,” and Robin Farmanfarmaian, author of The Patient as CEO: How Technology Empowers the Healthcare Consumer, who will present “The Healthcare Revolution Roadmap.”
Educational content areas include best practices in operations; federal laws, regulations, and advocacy; financial management; government affairs; patient-centered care; professional development and leadership; and strategy and planning.
The conference offers various networking opportunities, from receptions to specialty meetups. On the opening night, attendees can celebrate at the outdoor event Glow in the Park, which will feature glowing art, lawn games, live music, and cocktails. Attendees can also connect in the exhibit hall, and even get a sneak peek before the grand opening to get a head start on exploring the products and services from more than 250 vendors.
For those who can’t attend in person, MGMA is offering access to the conference online. A selection of sessions will be streamed live, including general and featured sessions as well as exclusive online sessions.
