Advance your team to the next level
Bring your entire team with you to the Annual Scientific Meeting, Nov. 10-14 in San Francisco. Whether you are in clinical practice or a research center, this year’s event has a wide range of educational opportunities for your entire office.
“Attending the Annual Scientific Meeting last year interested me due to the multiple changes happening, including ICD-10 and PQRS. I wanted to see how other members of ACAAI were handling the changes and compare to how we were handling them,” said Kim Canady, NRCMA, ACAAI Allied Health Professional member, Allergy, Asthma, & Immunology Associates.
“My favorite part of the meeting was the interaction between everyone. The presentation on compliance programs by Kay Tyler, MBA and Gary Gross, MD, FACAAI, were very helpful,” said Canady. “They reviewed the ICD-10 codes and verified information I had been getting mixed facts on from other sources. There were issues discussed about HIPAA and Meaningful Use that I wasn’t even aware of, so we were able to tackle those immediately back in the office. Overall, I am more knowledgeable on the topics and have more confidence in handling any situations that arise, whether it is with employees, patients, or an insurance/coding denial!”
