MGMA and AMA partner for new conference on medical practice innovation
For the first time, the Medical Group Management Association (MGMA) and American Medical Association (AMA) are partnering for a new conference focused on bringing together physician and administrative leaders to discuss innovative ways the organizations and their members can forge strong relationships to enhance practice efficiency and patient care.
The three-day Collaborate in Practice Conference in Colorado Springs, Colo., will arm attendees with successful, practical approaches to enhance the patient experience, improve population health, reduce costs, and improve satisfaction among providers and staff in their medical groups, hospitals and systems.
“As the healthcare industry continues to evolve, it’s more important than ever that physicians and practice managers are collaborating to provide the best and most efficient patient-centered, value-based healthcare,” said MGMA President and CEO Halee Fischer-Wright, MD, MMM, FAAP, CMPE. “We are thrilled to join forces with the AMA to bring together these two groups of practice leaders who, for too long, have operated in silos without the kind of coordination that will ensure lasting success in our industry.”
