    Are you attending Medtrade this year?  You're welcome to attend the 4th annual HME Christian Fellowship Event as people come together in Atlanta on Wednesday, 10/22 at 1pm to listen to Joni Eareckson Tada, pray for our industry, and learn how to be leaders for Christ in the workplace.

    Guest Speaker:

    Joni Eareckson Tada (founder and CEO of Joni & Friends, a Christian disability advocacy group)


    Audits.  Competitive Bidding.  Chaos.  Ever feel like our industry is under siege?  You’re doing everything you can to stay afloat, but sometimes it seems like the odds are against us.  Why would God let something like this happen?  

    Joni Eareckson Tada’s diving accident left her as a quadriplegic at 17.  In the most unlikely of circumstances, God was able to use her tragedy to His glory.  “I remember praying, ‘God, if I can’t die, then show me how to live.’ Many days afterward, I would sit in front of a Bible, holding a mouth-stick between my teeth and flipping the pages, praying that God would help me put together the puzzle pieces of my suffering.”   He answered her cry, & Joni went on to found Joni & Friends, an Christian disability ministry that has touched hundreds of thousands of lives across the globe.  He has great plans for you, too!

    Join us on Wednesday for a live video conference with Joni as she gives her testimony & explains how God works through us to transform our own lives & those of others.  Think about how God can work through you.  If he can use Joni & Friends to distribute 100,000 wheelchairs through their Wheels for the World program, what can He do through you, in your daily life, at work, and through our most challenging times?

    What will the HME marketplace look like in 2015 and beyond? 

    The future is bright, but it is clearly a different business than it was in the past.  Demand is incredibly strong, and it will be for a long time.  However, HME providers have several challenges, including the “recompete” of all Round 2 CBAs (that begins this  winter) and the 2016 implementation of regional competitive bidding payments to the entire United States.

    In the morning session our experts will offer step-by-step instructions, tips, strategies and bid worksheets to navigate the recompete process, as well as distribute the 2016 reimbursement amounts for competitively bid products in all of the non-CBA areas in the country to assist providers in their budgeting processes.

    The afternoon session will include current strategies for offering outcomes that matter in today’s ACO/Pay for Performance model.  Automated tracking and provider specific options that will incorporate needed documentation (for audit defense) as well as managing high risk patient in order to reduce 30 day hospital readmissions. 

    We will wrap up the program with a summary of our industry-specific services, all designed to  offer solutions to mitigate the perils of the current regulatory and reimbursement environment.
