HBMA’s 2010 Annual Conference will be held at the Hilton St. Louis at the Ballpark, September 12-14, 2010, and will feature three full days of educational sessions, legislative insights and networking opportunities for the medical billing community. Year after year, HBMA’s Annual Conference proves to be the premier educational and networking event for medical billing professionals as well as first party billers who specialize in office-based billing and practice management. Now that the Meaningful Use guidelines have been published, healthcare provider interest in electronic health records is reaching new heights. Newcomers and industry veterans looking to stay on the cutting edge with timely and relevant information won’t want to miss Bill Finerfrock’s government update or the EHR-focused sessions by HBMA’s EHR consultant, Mark Anderson.
On Sunday, September 12 at 4 p.m., Bill Finerfrock, HBMA’s government representative and vice president of health policy for Capitol Associates in Washington D.C., will present the HBMA Washington Update, which will address how current legislative and regulatory activity is affecting the billing community. Mark R. Anderson, FHIMSS, CPHIMS, CEO and Healthcare IT futurist of the AC Group, Inc., will host a post-conference workshop on Tuesday, September 14 from 1-5pm entitled, Ten Steps for Creating and Implementing Your Own EHR Program. Anderson will also lead an educational session, EHR Marketplace – Hype or Reality.
The HBMA Annual Conference features 16 pre-conference and post-conference programs, as well as an array of concurrent educational sessions focused on today’s issues in the billing management industry. The conference also offers extensive networking opportunities, highlighted by the Exhibitor Showcase, where attendees are able to meet face-to-face with technology and service vendors, consultants and other healthcare business partners to learn about the latest technology and administrative advances.
As always, the Annual Conference will also feature a full slate of receptions and special events, highlighted by a Gateway EDI-sponsored reception at the Gateway Arch for all registered attendees, their guests and exhibitors.
