Washington, D.C. (June 19, 2013) – Home health and hospice leaders will converge in Washington, DC on July 28 - 30, 2013 for the Financial Management Conference & Exposition designed to address the opportunities and challenges ahead for the industry.
With key features of the Affordable Care Act (ACA) law beginning to take affect in 2014, never has it been more important to learn the best financial management moves for the industry. A variety of general sessions and drill-down workshops are designed to boost skill sets in financial operations arenas that range from cost controls to revenue enhancement and strategic planning.
Attendees will earn continuing education credits while hearing from industry leaders who will share what has worked for them and how to navigate the future landscape of the home care world. This conference is co-sponsored by the National Association for Home Care & Hospice (NAHC) and its affiliate Home Care & Hospice Financial Managers Association (HHFMA).
This year, the conference will offer attendees four targeted tracks of learning including Home Health, Hospice, Care Innovations and Management/Leadership. Learn how to boost the bottom line despite tighter reimbursement. Find out how you can leverage technology to drive performance and innovation. Medicaid program tries to control long-term spending. Get tools to forecast your strategic planning needs in home health.
There are also pre-conference sessions available: Hospice Summer Camp, which will hone the skills and expertise needed to enhance their management of hospice financial operations and Home Health Summer Camp, which will expand their knowledge base in the diverse world of home care finance.
“With so much at stake, this is the year to attend the Financial Management Conference” said Val J. Halamandaris, president of NAHC. “Having state-of-the-art financial management skills will be invaluable in meeting the future challenges ahead while at the same time capturing the new opportunities for care in the home.”
