Physical Therapists Converge In Vegas for Annual Conference

Posted by on

Are you a physical therapist looking to earn continuing education units (CEU)? Do you want to learn more about physical therapy EMR software or hear stories about issues affecting practices like yours? If so, the PPS/APTA Annual Conference & Exhibition is the place for you.

Organized by the Private Practice Section of the American Physical Therapy Association, this year’s event will take place at the Wynn Resort in Las Vegas, Nevada from Thursday, October 25 through Saturday, October 27.

Attendees who are able to make it to Las Vegas a day early can participate in two pre-conference workshops, “Navigating in an ACO and Shared Savings Environment: The What, Why and How” and “Claims, Coding, Appeals, Audits & Regulations-Stepping It Up a Notch!” which is geared towards practice administrators.

Lectures, seminars and discussions throughout the three-day event will cover a wide range of physical therapy topics, though physicians will likely pay special attention to health technology-related sessions. A key session on Day 1, for example, will discuss how the National Health Information Exchange (HIE) initiative is impacting care delivery for physical therapists. Speakers will provide information to help physicians decide whether or not to participate in an HIE. On Day 2, attendees will want to make sure they get a good seat at the “Moving Your Practice into the Cloud” session – particularly for physical therapists who have questions about cloud computing and using a cloud-based EMR.

All those interested in learning more about EMR technology can check out 1st Providers Choice’s physical therapy EMR and practice management software at Booth 517. Other exhibitors at the event will include software vendors and rehabilitation centers, as well as additional companies that offer services to the physical therapy industry.
