2019 Hospital Observation Patient Management Conference

Innovations in Observation Patient Management – Prevent Unnecessary Admissions, Maximize Reimbursements and Leverage Evidence-Based Triage Protocols to Improve Short-Term Care Quality 

October 7 – 8, 2019 • Palmer House, A Hilton Hotel • Chicago, IL

Faced with increasing patient volumes, declining reimbursements and overworked ED staffs, hospitals must be prepared to leverage Observation Patient Management. Well-structured Observation Units have resulted in financial gains, improved clinical outcomes and superior patient satisfaction ratings.

The 2019 Hospital Observation Patient Management Conference will highlight the pertinent challenges facing Observation Unit staffs – ED physicians, Hospitalists, Case Managers and Billing and Coding professionals. Additionally, the conference will highlight how and why hospitals that are not utilizing Observation Patient Management, are leaving money on the table.

The 2019 Hospital Observation Patient Management Conference will allow you to walk away with an understanding of current trends and market practices, and innovative strategies to prepare yourself for the challenges that lie ahead. In addition to providing the latest, evidence-based intelligence on Observation Patient Management, the Summit will provide you with unprecedented networking and professional development opportunities. All sessions are designed to facilitate a high degree of interaction between speaker faculty members and fellow attendees.

By attending the 2019 Hospital Observation Patient Management Conference, you will learn what others in the Observation Patient Management and Emergency Medicine arenas are doing to be prepared for the challenges that lie ahead in 2020.
