FAHQ Annual Conference

May 1-4, 2017


Our 2017 Annual Conference will bring together speakers to address the top healthcare challenges and trends both now and beyond. From value-based payment to technological advancements these trends are transforming the entire healthcare industry. Clinicians and administrative leaders are demanding more data to help make decisions and guide planning, at the same time the quality professional is addressing data security, population health management and working to collaborate in new partnerships that cross industries within and outside of the continuum of care. This Conference will host a mix of invited speakers and those selected from our Call for Abstracts, to provide sufficient breadth and depth of information on key issues. Our goal is to provide information by the experts in the field, followed by presentations which showcase innovation and collaboration in successful practices which have inspired creative actions or tackled the barriers we face.

The week’s programs will include the Certified Professional in Healthcare Quality (CPHQ) Review Course on Monday/Tuesday (May 1-2), two four-hour Pre-Conference sessions on Tuesday (May 2), and the Annual Conference on Wednesday and Thursday (May 3-4).
