It’s that time of year again! For the start of this spring season, RoundTable will have a presence at several conferences, including: MAHCE Telehealth Program in Columbia, AMGA​ National Conference in National Harbor, the 2019 DVHIMSS Spring Symposium, and ​the 2019 Patient Experience Forum​—​both taking place in Philadelphia.

On March 21, RoundTable representatives will be participating in the Telehealth Program, a one-day event hosted by the Maryland Association of Health Care Executives (MAHCE), a local chapter of the the American College of Health Care Executives (ACHE)​ ​dedicated to “professional development and interchange among senior-level health care executives” as well as a myriad of other health-related professions. Through a panel of experts seasoned in the implementation of telehealth initiatives, this year’s event will focus on the role of virtual technologies, both current and futuristically, in minimizing barriers to the provider-patient relationship​—​enabling our team to better address our clients’ abilities to improve the patient experience, and access to care.

Concurrently on March 21, our team will be travelling to Philadelphia to attend the 2019 Spring Symposium organized by the Delaware Valley chapter of HIMSS (DVHIMSS). With its theme “​The Patient-Provider Experience: Beyond the Point of Care”, the one-day event will give our representatives an opportunity to assess the impact of various data tools on today’s patient-provider experience, further honing their competencies to strategically improve patient care as well as consumer engagement.

From March 27 to March 30, the team will venture to National Harbor in Maryland for the AMGA 2019 Annual Conference, where they will be among 2,000 healthcare leaders of group practices, integrated delivery systems, academic practices and other organized systems of care eager to participate in peer-to-peer breakout sessions, speaking engagements, and networking discussion groups. Since the conference is tailored to healthcare executives who are directly responsible and accountable for the success of their organizations, RoundTable will engage in high-quality learning activities to gain timely insights on how these representatives are balancing their financial viability of the organization with the needs of their patients and community.

In early April, RoundTable will be participating in the 2019 Patient Experience Forum. The forum’s emphasis on the importance of instituting efficient, patient-friendly hospital technologies and practices will allow our team to be more equipped to transform our clients’ abilities to enhance their quality of care and revenue cycle management.

“Having an understanding of the tools and practices that constantly shape the patient experience is vital to our client-base,”​ said Scott Ketchen, President, RoundTable Strategic Solutions. “These conferences are extremely beneficial in that they provide a forum to evaluate and assess the current and future landscape of what providers will need to do to improve this experience. We are excited to connect with other forward-thinking industry peers on this theme.”
