The Affordable Care Act is a reality. Accountable Care Organizations are up and running. Providers need the tools to succeed and prosper in this new environment. ABQAURP's 37th Annual Health Care Quality & Patient Safety Conference will provide attendees information on current strategies being employed and "tools they can use" to get paid for innovation and high-value care.

Regarding the need for a timely conference focused on the Affordable Care Act (and its impact), Sunil K. Sinha, MD, MBA, CHCQM, CME Chair for ABQAURP stated, “As we move from the legislation to implementation phase of the Affordable Care Act, many facets of health care reform are becoming more evident. With multiple ACOs [Accountable Care Organizations] open for business, and health exchanges taking form in various states across the country, it is clear that despite ongoing legal challenges, change is going forward, perhaps at a rate faster than envisioned.”

“We are delighted to present these innovative sessions* providing attendees information on current strategies being employed and the "tools they can use" to get compensated for innovation, outcomes, and the full scope of care they are providing,” noted Arthur Broder, MD, CHCQM, Chairman of ABQAURP’s Board of Directors.
