Gaylord National Resort & Convention Center
Fall Conference Program
Join us as former Speaker of the House of Representatives and 2012 Presidential Candidate, the Honorable Newt Gingrich, presents the Opening Keynote Address at the Fall Conference September 12th at 1:00 PM.
Speaker Gingrich is widely recognized for his commitment to a better system of health for all Americans. His leadership helped save Medicare from bankruptcy, prompted FDA reform to help the seriously ill and initiated a new focus on research, prevention, and wellness. His contributions have been so great that the American Diabetes Association awarded him their highest non-medical award and the March of Dimes named him their 1995 Citizen of the Year.
In 2003, the Speaker founded the Center for Health Transformation to develop free market healthcare reforms to foster a 21st Century System of health and healthcare that is centered on the individual, prevention focused, knowledge intense and innovation rich.
HBMA is honored to host such an important public and political figure. The Speaker understands the critical role HBMA members play in the financial aspect of our healthcare system and is looking forward to getting to know our Association and its members much better.
Our host hotel, the Gaylord National is situated on the Potomac River in the greater Washington DC area. The Education Committee has taken advantage of this location to schedule sessions and events that involve various legislative groups. Government speakers and industry experts have been invited to present at both the general and the concurrent sessions.
This meeting will include significant updates on Healthcare Reform as well as on EHR challenges and opportunities. Attendees will be able to select sessions that best fit their needs as they specifically relate to Business Operations as well as EHR Challenges.
