Availity has participated in the national conference for the Medical Group Management Association for years. It has always been a great experience, but this year really blew us away.

More than 1,500 health care professionals visited the Availity booth during this year’s annual MGMA conference in San Diego, Calif. this month. In addition to an intense focus on the upcoming transition to ICD-10, visitors expressed a keen interest in revenue cycle management and related performance management capabilities, such as denial management and comparative analytics capabilities.

Providers told us that ICD-10 and health care reform are forcing them to take a hard look at their existing capabilities. They are looking for solutions that will get them through the ICD-10 transition and give them a foundation to succeed in a new era of value-based payments.

Of course, we were also pleased to see that our newly rebranded booth got a nod from HIStalk for “coolest booth,” thanks to an open layout, comfy couches, stellar presenters… and I’m sure the Tiffany jewelry set drawing didn’t hurt.

Thank you to our industry experts who partnered with us for this event:

Sarah Holt, practice executive, Cape Girardeau Surgical Clinic and Breast Care Center

Dennis Viellieu, CEO, Midwest Orthopaedics at Rush

Danny Conaway, Coresolve Medical Solutions
