The 2014 MGMA National Conference, Condensed and Discussed

Event Format

There will be several rapid fire presentations throughout the morning session, each lasting about 10 minutes that will summarize the top issues in healthcare management and latest developments. With each brief overview, Gary Cavett and Libby Hornibrook of DS&B will recap the best presentations that were given during this year’s MGMA National Conference and add commentary.

Select HMES presentations will then be followed by a panel discussion with local experts and medical practice leaders to speak about their perspective on the issues. In addition, our special guests from Alerus Financial and Fredrikson & Byron will present what they see as the big issues facing their healthcare clients in 2015.

Benefit to Attendees

The benefit for attendees will be not only a recap of the latest developments presented at the National MGMA Conference but also what their peers and experts expect the impact to be on their medical practices or professions here in Minnesota.
