Andrew J. Schneider, DPM
Any visit to San Antonio must include a visit to the Alamo and a walk along the Riverwalk to sample the best Tex-Mex and margaritas in the country. There is a bonus if you visit November 10-12, though—the AAPPM will be holding its Fall Practice Management Symposium for the first time.
Keynote Speaker: David Hefman, DPM
The location is not the only thing changing for this meeting: this AAPPM conference is setting a record for new and updated content at any of our meetings. We’re proud to welcome Dr. David Helfman as our keynote speaker. Dr. Helfman has built Village Podiatry Centers, arguably the largest and most successful practice in the country. His involvement in many other ventures gives him knowledge of the direction where medicine is headed. He will be speaking on ancillary services, an important element in the growth and success of his practice.
The AAPPM will also host Colleen Harryman, a representative from Noridian Medicare, to provide education on preventing audits for therapeutic shoes and DME. If you are one of the many practitioners reluctant to continue providing DME to your Medicare patients, this is one workshop you cannot miss!
MIPS, MACRA, and More
Thinking of getting away from insurance entirely? It’s a scary thought, but it can be done. Drs. Sev Hyrwnak and John Guiliana will host a workshop on this very topic. You will learn what it will entail and acquire the tools to decide if such a drastic change is the right one for you.
If you decide to stay with Medicare after that workshop, you must be on top of the changes coming in 2017, not the least of which are MIPS and MACRA. You will find out everything you need to know to be successful moving forward. We have lectures scheduled in our Coding and Compliance workshop, a separate workshop entirely focused on these changes presented by Dr. Michael Brody, and an interactive panel discussion and roundtable where all of your questions can be answered.
This is just the tip of the iceberg! Other topic highlights include:
- Incorporating a new associate into your practice
- Exit strategies leading toward retirement
- Hands-on diagnostic ultrasound workshop
- Basics of running a small business
- … and much more that you need to be successful
Whether this is your first time at an AAPPM event, or you are a seasoned veteran, there will be a tremendous number of takeaways that you can implement in your practice for better patient care, better compliance, and increased revenue. Don’t wait! Register today and secure your rooms. We look forward to seeing you in Texas!
