We Support The Healthcare Industry! For this event, SSN is proud to offer FREE admission
to our events to employees of health plans and hospitals as a thank you for all you do for all of us.

A successful risk adjustment department must be instantly responsive to changing CMS regulations and market conditions while innovating out-of-the-box solutions that deliver competitive advantage. Are you utilizing the best practices and procedures to optimize reimbursement? Join us at the 2nd Medicare Risk Adjustment & Revenue Management Innovations Summit designed exclusively for the unique needs of MA health plans, with a strong emphasis on actual health plan Best Practice Case Studies, in addition to vendor solutions. As the technology landscape evolves, plans are challenged to augment their coding programs with NLP and other AI tools. Hear from top MA health plans to find out how to minimize the impact of the pandemic by preserving quality and sustaining data volume, building strong provider incentive programs and ensuring compliance.

To optimize appropriate reimbursement, plans must work more efficiently and effectively within their organizations and with the provider community to ensure Data Quality & CMS compliance. Find out how MA health plan risk adjustment leaders are diligently working on reeducating providers on telehealth guidelines, flagging SDoH conditions, assisting providers on prioritizing member needs, and helping technology-challenged vulnerable members access care. For your safety, all SSN events are now virtual until the all-clear. These live-streaming events, which we have successfully delivered since April of last year, have received rave reviews in response to the unmatched content and faculty. And, our state-of-the art virtual platform allows for great networking and interaction through riveting general sessions, all designed to make your experience as real as if you were there in person. Plus, there are multiple chat rooms designed to connect you one-on-one (on camera if you choose) with the people you want to meet!

Hear how industry leaders have excelled beyond traditional performance levels. Speakers will drill down into the granular solutions that you can take home and implement to transform your plan's performance.
