Distilling the Healthcare Acronym Jungle: Finding and implementing common ground among next generation healthcare reimbursement and quality systems

This presentation attempts to distill the essence behind the mire of regulation and re-regulation that has occurred during the last 10 years in healthcare. While many courses provide a short primer on each new program, this session will look deeper into the commonalities between them, helping you create a more unified approach and communication message when managing or implementing next generation healthcare initiatives.
