Posted on Dec 11, 2019 by Lori Boyer

    Keeping up with the latest trends and developments within the healthcare industry is critical to running a successful healthcare organization.  Practices that do not keep up cannot expect to attract and retain patients as well as their competition.

    Conferences on a budget

    If you’re feeling like your budget is a little tight this year, don't worry. There are still options that can work for you.

    1. Start by checking out state or regional conferences. Simply Google “2020  Dental conferences in New York” or “California Medical Conferences 2020” and you will come up with a good list of conferencesThere are affordable healthcare conferences for any budgetcloser to home.
    2. You can also look for regional chapters of each of these larger organizations listed above. Your local chapter will often host events or small conferences in your area.
    3. You can also attend a “topics-driven” event like the MGMA Practice Operations conference in Austin, TX. These are smaller conferences put on by the larger organizations. They tend to be a bit more affordable.
    4. Finally, many conferences offer online versions for a much more affordable price. Do a little digging around and you may be able to “attend” without ever leaving home.

    We’d love to hear from you. What conferences are your favorite? Any tips and advice for first time conference go-ers? Let us know in the comments!
