Research Billing Compliance Summit

FEB 27TH - MARCH 1ST, 2023 | LOCATION TBD

ORGANIZING PARTNERS:

The Research Billing Compliance Summit brought the billing community back together in August at the Regency Hyatt in Denver. Twenty seven were represented at the first in-person event since COVID started nearly two and half years ago! With over 30 speakers, the vast variety of topics included: device trials, pediatrics, invoicing and AR management, budgeting, deploying A3 for problem solving, training, coverage analysis and patient financial risks.

The challenges sites are facing with losing staff to CRO/Sponsors, the cost of turnover, and how to keep a site running were discussed as well. With a  panel discussion centered around billing, coding, coverage analysis and compliance with information points from different types of sites across the country, attendees experienced round table discussions and had the ability to ask specific questions of experts in all different areas of billing compliance.

Attendees enjoyed hearing what other institutions have centralized billing compliance operations and the coverage analysis process overall.  Discussing frustrations that lie in the benefits of an established billing compliance program brought the community back together to share best practices and commiserate! Reviewing operational silos and comprehensive challenges in billing compliance were highlights of the conference. Where were you?

Make plans to join us at all of the future events as this is THE billing compliance community to be a part of! Join us at the Research Compliance EDGE Clinical Billing Group on LinkedIn to keep up with what is going on in research billing compliance!
