Gearing up for the Saving Private Practice Consortium
I have been talking a lot about LACMA’s signature event, the Saving Private Practice Consortium on March 3rd, which is now just over a week away. After months of planning and collaboration with LACMA’s physician leaders, we have a solid and robust agenda of activities and discussions planned that impact all aspects of not only private practice, but healthcare in LA County.
We are looking forward to welcoming over 20 of LACMA’s preferred partners who will have teams of experts ready to work with you one on one and offer free help with everything from practice operations, personal financial planning, wellness and more. On top of that, we have a back to back schedule of breakout sessions that will address a variety of topics from marketing your practice, improving patient engagement, navigating the regulatory landscape, and maximizing your collections and reimbursements, among others.
This event is unlike any other. As an attendee, you can design your own experience and choose who you want to meet with and what you want to learn more about. A lot of new and innovative companies will have dedicated resources to help physicians with healthcare and technology. Not only will our keynote from athenahealth talk about how physicians can leverage technology to improve care and save time, but companies from our Technology Solutions Council, like HealthGrid, TigerText, and JNTTek, will be onsite to help physicians benefit from and make sense of various tech tools.
Really, this event is about you and meeting your needs as a physician. In fact, there will be several physicians presenting throughout the day as well to share expertise on advocating for patients, advocating for yourself and ultimately advocating for the future of healthcare in California. All physicians need to be a part of those conversations!
Please register here, if you have not already and share this information with your colleagues. This is a free event for administrators and physicians!
Paragon Private Health
Paragon Private Health is new to our partner team. Their mission is to help physicians who want to completely transition their practice to a concierge model with full conversions, as well as partial hybrid implementations for physicians who want to include concierge medicine as an optional offering. Paragon will be at the Consortium, but you can also join them tomorrow evening (Wednesday, February 21st) for a special physicians dinner with CEO, Hiren Doshi, to learn more. The dinner begins at 6:30 PM at Il Pastaio at 400 North Canon Drive in Beverly Hills. Call Brad Haines at 805-952-9593 if you would like to attend.
Paragon Private Health is not just an expert at helping physicians launch concierge programs, but also assists in managing them and ensuring that the level of service is maintained and that patients are getting quality care. Whether you are a primary care physician or specialist, solo or group, Paragon’s tailored approach addresses your specific needs and ensures your practice will thrive.
