Featured Tracks

Risk Adjustment and Quality Ratings

Payment is complex, and it can be impossible to keep up with every policy and update. We’ve developed a tailored track to get you up to speed. Listen to experts in these subfields as they cover emerging policy and operational trends in risk adjustment and quality ratings.

Coding, Financial Compliance and Audit Readiness

Coding and audit professionals will share best practices for data submissions, aligning risk adjustment processes and claim validation to close gaps, revenue audits, and meeting compliance demands.

Medical Management and Clinical Quality

In light of the movement to integrate risk, quality and clinical operations to maximize efficiencies and minimize provider abrasion, this track offers specialized content for Medical Directors, CMO’s and managers of plan’s clinical operations. This track provides a slightly different angle of “how-to” information for the clinical side of plan operations.


An entire track dedicated to provider-focused issues in risk adjustment and quality reporting — including sessions on collaborative engagement best practices, essential steps to ensure success in risk-bearing partnerships, and case studies.
