7 Reasons to Attend User Conference 2014

by Leslie Brunner, SVP of People and Process

With less than two months to go until our annual athenahealth User Conference, our 55+ sessions are available for you to explore (and filling up fast). Our keynote speaker has been selected, and the snow here in Boston is slowly starting to melt— and we have hopes that the temperatures will be in the 60s when our clients arrive!

If you’re an athenahealth client and haven’t yet decided whether to join us at UC14, here are some reasons we think you’ll want to.

  1. Specialty-specific Sessions
    For those of you in cardiology, primary care, obstetrics and gynecology, orthopedics, or pediatrics, we have sessions designed specifically around the topics that matter most to you.
  2. CME-accredited Courses
    This year, we’re offering eight CME courses with topics ranging from the basics of accountable care to payment reform. Two new sessions I’m particularly excited about:
    • “Reporting to a Patient Safety Organization (PSO): What athenahealth’s Partnership with Quantros Means for You” (NSPR-06)
    • “ICD-10 Documentation and Audits—Considerations for Success”(XPRT-13)
  3. Inspiring and Meaningful Keynote
    We’re proud to announce Christy Turlington Burns as our 2014 User Conference keynote speaker Given our early roots running a birth center we find Ms. Burns’ work as an advocate for global maternal health especially inspiring and close to our hearts. Learn more about Christy Turlington Burns and the non-profit she founded, Every Mother Counts.
  4. Time with Experts
    Receive one-on-one attention from our athenaNet experts, and get answers to your trickiest athenaNet questions, “How do I send an order to an in-network lab,” or “How am I doing for Meaningful Use?” Join us and ask away! You will also have the opportunity to meet with your Account Managers and build an action plan for your organization.
  5. Casino Night
    Back by popular demand… get ready to play, dine and dance the night way with friends, colleagues and athenistas. Or, more simply: Take a break and prepare for a night that’s free from talk about ICD-10, Meaningful Use, population health, and all other health care-related topics.
    (For a glimpse into all that is Casino Night, check out these photos from last year’s UC.)
  6. Strategies for Care Coordination
    Explore how to forge better, smarter connections across your care network, and see how the right approaches to care coordination can change and improve the way care is delivered, and reimbursed.
  7. Historical Boston
    Explore the beautiful, historic city of Boston! Hop on a duck tour, stroll the North End, enjoy our famous clam chowdah at Quincy Market, and have a wicked good time.

Many of y’all know that athenistas are passionate about teaching and learning and I believe there is no better representation of that piece of our culture than the User Conference. I’ve been here 16 years and I believe 2014 will be our best conference yet! So….what are you waiting for?

When you register before March 31st for User Conference 2014, you’ll save $100!
