Are You Ready for the NORM Annual Conference?

Rheumatology Practice Management August 2017 Vol 5 No 4 - From the Editor
Ethel D. Owen, Editor-in-Chief
Rheumatology Practice Management
President, NORM

Feeling blue about the many changes facing your rheumatology practice? Are you ready to “Pick Your Pace” and report on the Medicare Access and CHIP Reauthorization Act using the Merit-based Incentive Payment System? Are you properly billing and documenting “Incident To” encounters? Is your practice HIPAA and OSHA compliant? Is it prepared for audits? At the National Organization of Rheumatology Managers (NORM) 2017 Annual Conference, September 14-16, in Kansas City, MO, our expert speakers and educational sessions will help you further develop your management skills and successfully lead your practice into the future.

Is it time to bring in a mid-level or new doctor? The NORM Educational Committee will help you explore new ways to analyze your practice to determine what type of provider will best fulfill your needs.

Education and support for our members remains a primary goal for NORM. That is why, for the third year, we will be offering the American Academy of Professional Coders Certified Rheumatology Coder proctored test and prep course, which is open to NORM members, physicians, and staff. For more information about registering for the Certified Rheumatology Coder test, please visit our website at www.NORMgroup.org.

I would like to thank all the physicians who acknowledge the value of NORM by sending their managers to our conferences. Your support greatly contributes to the success of our organization. Each year, I listen to first-time conference attendees express their surprise and delight upon discovering the vast networking experiences and rheumatology-specific content associated with these events. Throughout the year, NORM also keeps its members updated on current regulatory changes and payer changes with timely Town Hall meetings and educational webinars.

Don’t miss out on the rheumatology event of the year. Bring your knowledge, leadership, and passion as we “Get Jazzed About Rheumatology.” There are no strangers at our conference, only friends we have yet to meet.
