5. Come Prepared for an Agenda that Leaves No Healthcare Payments Stone Unturned
Want to talk about workflow and collection improvements from integrated payments? There’s a session for that. Want to learn more about new, advanced or non-traditional payment channels? There’s a session for that. Want to report back to your CISO that you can reduce PCI scope at your organization by 90%? There’s a session for that. Payment reporting? Digital wallets? New and emerging healthcare payment trends? Our jam-packed agenda covers every major topic in healthcare payments, so you’re guaranteed to come away with valuable and actionable takeaways to implement at your organization.
6. Protect Your Ability to Deliver Exceptional Patient Care
Security breaches are a serious and growing threat to the healthcare industry. In fact, the number of data breaches in 2017 was nearly three times the number in 2016. Ransomware attacks, in particular, affect more than just IT operations. Patient care, clinical operations and billing are all at risk when patient information becomes unavailable. Learn how to arm your organization against attacks – from your network servers to your front office staff – from InstaMed’s own security expert, Noah Dermer. He’ll take a consultative approach to explain the most intricate security regulations and technologies, like PCI, P2PE and tokenization, in a relatable and intelligible way. Meet Noah.
7. Appreciate Philadelphia for More Than Just Cheesesteaks
There are plenty of reasons we’re proud to call Philadelphia InstaMed’s home. The city is full of rich American history, like Independence Hall where the declaration was signed, the Liberty Bell and those famous art museum steps that star in everyone’s favorite sports movie training montage.
