The American Board of Quality Assurance and Utilization Review Physicians (ABQAURP) announces speakers for its 2014 Conference: “Getting Paid for Innovation and High Value Outcomes: The Path to Cost Effective, Accessible Health Care for All.”

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.

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 Accountable Care Organizations (ACOs) 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.

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.

ABQAURP is proud to announce the following speakers scheduled to appear at this conference:
