EDPMA Virtual Workshop: Planning for Profitable Growth

Planning for Profitable Growth 

Date: September 28, 2023
Time: 1:00pm – 4:00pm EST

Overview

Healthcare costs have risen over the years, and payment programs have shifted to quality and cost reduction rather than services performed or time spent.  Thus far, Emergency Medicine has yet to benefit from this movement.  Given the strain on revenue and operating margins, organizations primarily dependent on traditional fee-for-service in-person EM services must adapt their business model.
