The eighth annual HIMSS Revenue Cycle Solutions Summit will assist healthcare financial professionals in optimizing the revenue cycle at healthcare organizations through educational seminars lead by world-class speakers, special networking events and an exhibit hall staged with the latest health IT technologies. According to the Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society (HIMSS), “Revenue cycle performance at healthcare organizations nationwide has been seriously lagging, with hundreds of hospitals reporting huge revenue losses. In fact, the average 350-bed hospital misses $22 million in revenue capture opportunities.” At HIMSS18, healthcare financial professionals will benefit from:
- Over 40,000 health professionals in attendance
- 17 speakers
- Dedicated CE courses and credits for physicians, nurses, pharmacists and executives
- The ability to earn Continuing Education (CE) credits towards certification programs including Certified Professional in Healthcare Information and Management Systems (CPHIMS), Certified Associate in Healthcare Information and Management Systems (CAHIMS) and the CHIME Certified Healthcare CIO (CHCIO) Program
- Additional CE credit offered by The American Board of Preventive Medicine (ABPM), the American Health Information Management Association (AHIMA) and the Project Management Institute (PMI)
- 1,300 plus exhibiting companies
HIMSS18 will take place at the Wynn Hotel in Las Vegas from March 5 – 9.
