The Impact of Rules, Regulations & Legislation
There is a direct impact on the delivery and business of healthcare whether Washington, D.C. or Harrisburg enacts legislation, or whether a federal or state agency issues regulations and reforms. We, as healthcare leaders, must understand and deal with how our patients and practice are affected.
As the community of healthcare leaders from across the state, the Pennsylvania MGMA hosts this forum for you to hear directly from individuals who can affect change.
Join leaders, movers and shakers at this full-day event.
