AHAP 2013: We’re betting on red

What can we say, we like our odds! That’s why we’re headed back to Las Vegas for the 2013 Seventh Annual AHAP conference, June 6-7, 2013 at the Flamingo Las Vegas Casino and Hotel.

For the second time we are offering our Accreditation Specialist Boot Camp as a pre-conference event to help get new accreditation professionals started on the right foot. Spend two-and-a-half days at the Boot Camp— a unique classroom-based learning experience that delivers detailed descriptions, analysis, and training of all Joint Commission and CMS standards— and end your week building your professional network at the 7th annual AHAP conference.

As usual, we will award the 2013 Accreditation Professional of the Year and the Best New Accreditation Professional. We’re also bringing back our popular poster session, and a Day 1 roundtable discussion with our speakers and top accrediting bodies.

What type of sessions will you find at the conference? Here’s a sample:

  • A session on staying organized and keeping up with the ever changing Joint Commission and CMS standards requirements
  • A session on improving focus areas and reviewing regulatory changes and top RFIs for 2013
  • A session presented by a Life Safety expert focusing on Environment of Care and Life Safety management, and the documentation that accreditation professionals never get to see
  • Sessions on tracers and managing the mock survey process to prioritize improvements and correct vulnerabilities
  • A presentation by The Joint Commission on the challenging balancing act of managing risk is healthcare organizations
  • Sessions on performance improvement and managing CMS QAPI requirements
  • A case study presented by a director of accreditation who successfully completed the process of achieving advanced comprehensive stroke certification
  • Sessions on continual compliance staff training, education, and competency
  • And more!

We owe a great deal of gratitude to those who made the 2012 conference such a wonderful experience for us and attendees alike, including Jean Clark, Jodi Eisenberg, Greg Finch, Brad Keyes, Dana Moore, Candy Bright, Suzanne Richards, Sharon Chaput, Kirk Woodring, John Finnerty, and Gaye Hay.
