HIMSS and Healthcare Finance News are accepting topic and speaker proposals for the Revenue Cycle Solutions Summit, Feb. 29 in Las Vegas at the 2016 HIMSS Annual Conference & Exhibition.

The one-day event will focus on how the modern healthcare delivery system is using technology to drive improvement throughout the revenue cycle. There will be a special focus on how healthcare organizations are leveraging data and analytics to do this.

Click here to submit your proposal and for additional information. The deadline to submit a proposal is December 11.

The Revenue Cycle Solutions Summit focuses on peer-to peer education and delivers information to healthcare revenue cycle, finance, and IT support teams from throughout the United States. The summit provides attendees with best practices, case studies, innovation approaches, and valuable tools to help them optimize the payment process and improve financial outcomes.

Presentations should be practical, actionable, and solutions-based. Case studies are a priority for this event.

Submissions from vendors are not accepted. However, vendors may submit proposals on behalf of provider and payer customers.

Best practices. Case studies. Solutions.

Event attendees will be seeking insight into how to use technology to, among other things, right-size revenue cycle staff, conquer ICD-10,  improve workflow and coding, reduce denials, enhance patient experience, standardize and centralize processes, improve A/R, and transition to value-based healthcare, Obamacare and other new care and delivery models.

Presentations should be practical, actionable, and solutions-based. Case studies are a priority, especially those that show how technology has delivered a tangible ROI.

Submissions will only be accepted from payer and provider organizations, government agencies, and academic institutions. Only rarely will we accept submissions from vendors and consultants.

To be considered, the proposal form must be filled out completely. The deadline for submitting a proposal is December 11, 2015. Thank you for your interest in the Revenue Cycle Solutions Summit, and if your proposal matches our requirements, we will contact you.
