Top 10 Takeaways from HFMA Western Symposium

I was privileged to spend four days in Las Vegas attending the 19th Annual HFMA Western Region Symposium. This was the first-time it was a joint event between Region 10 and 11. I came home with lots of valuable information but here are my top 10 takeaways from the event.

  1. Kicking off the Welcome Reception with some football fun was a huge hit… if you must know, I sat with the Bronco’s table
  2. The must -attend 80’s event was an absolute blast and yes, I dressed up
  3. The invaluable sessions centered around revenue cycle and leadership
  4. An interesting healthcare fact: $5,731 is the average deductible for the Bronze plan in 2017
  5. The key-note speakers Wayne Newton and Seth Mattison were extremely insightful
  6. A compelling healthcare fact: Patient responsibility is increasing on average 15% annually
  7. Lots and lots of networking and open discussions
  8. An inspiring leadership fact: We often sacrifice what we want most for what we want right now
  9. A thought-provoking healthcare fact: If a patient pays a portion of their bill at point of service they are 60% more likely to pay the full debt on time
  10. Did I mention you could stand in line to get a picture with Wayne Newton?
