The conference will be held on February 6 & 7 at the Bahia Resort Hotel in San Diego, California

The Hospital Revenue Cycle Management in the era of Affordable Care Conference will be the first to encompass the entire revenue cycle and prepare hospital decision makers for the future of the cycle, from Registration to Payment as it applies to future health care reform.

Todd's presentation, "Mind Your Dollars: Innovative Revenue Strategies for Success Under Reform" will send attendees home with a list of options to maximize opportunities under PPACA, CDHC programs, and group health benefit redesign to create innovative alternate revenue strategies and reduce dependence on government reimbursement sources.

A second panel will discuss "Practitioner / Executive Panel Discussion How to Deal with the Next Generation of Healthcare: ACOs" at 11:45 am  on February 7th. Todd will present  "Physician Alignment and Integration Challenges for Healthcare Provider Networks" where she will cover quality assurance, case management, customer expectations and continuity of care coordination to help attendees understand needed infrastructure when designing networks and building innovative contracting and reimbursement strategies that include bundled payments and/or capitation.
