“How Practices Can Prepare for the Future of Rising Costs and Lower Payments”
CEO of Vector Medical Group
David N. Gans, MSHA, FACMPE
Retired Senior Fellow, Industry Affairs, MGMA
Join us on Thursday, December 7th, 2023, for an in-person Meeting!
Join us Thursday, December 7th at 5:30 pm MT for an in-person meeting with Dana Jacoby, CEO of Vector Medical Group, and David Gans, MSHA, FACMPE, Retired Senior Fellow, Industry Affairs, MGMA, regarding practices across the United States that are experiencing severe challenges as they are forced to pay higher prices for materials while their labor costs increased to record levels. While some industries can raise their prices, physicians are caught between the rock of set payments and the hard place of ever-increasing expenses.
While operating costs have surged, government and commercial insurers have kept reimbursement stagnant as private practices, and even large health systems, lack negotiating leverage to increase payment.
In this evening meeting, David Gans and Dana Jacoby will outline past trends in practice expenses and revenue, describe the current payment environment, and provide potential solutions for practices, large and small, as they are faced with the evolving healthcare landscape of ever higher costs and static income.
Dana Jacoby is recognized as a difference maker and trusted advisor to health system executives, medical practices, vendors, and other stakeholders in optimizing patient care while also elevating financial and operational performance.
Dana’s passion for operational excellence has driven a distinguished record of achievement at the intersection of market data, measurement and analytics, strategy design and implementation, and technology innovation.
She is a published author and engages audiences as a keynote speaker, educator, and subject matter expert at medical forums, summits, and
conferences. Dana has played a pivotal role in leading transformation throughout the highly regulated and value-centric health care industry.
