Practical Data Solutions to Showcase Expertise and Innovation at MGMA’s Medical Practice Excellence: Leaders Conference

Posted on October 11, 2021


Southbury, CT (10/11/2021) – Practical Data Solutions (PDS) is pleased to announce its participation in the Medical Group Management Association (MGMA) Medical Practice Excellence: Leaders Conference, Oct. 24-27, 2021. This year, to help medical practices across the United States stay ahead of the industry’s rapid pace, medical practice leaders can meet in-person or via a virtual platform. This will provide all attendees, regardless of location or travel preference, to reconnect with peers to solve some of the biggest challenges medical practices face every day, such as improving patient outcomes, tackling physician burnout, minimizing inefficiencies, building winning teams, and optimizing revenue cycles.

Throughout the 4-day in-person conference, PDS will be showcasing best practice visual analytics and reporting solutions to the market and media while engaging with its consumer base.

PDS first exhibited at the MGMA conference in 2001, and they have exhibited at every MGMA conference since then. PDS feels the MGMA is the best avenue to speak directly with medical groups to understand the challenges they are facing in order to tune their product offerings to stay at the forefront of healthcare analytics.

“CMS made significant changes to RVUs and practices are still trying to measure the impact,” said Russell Hendrickson, CEO of Practical Data Solutions. “PDS will be showcasing our new PDS RVU Enhancer software that allows organizations to manage multiple RVU calculations for each year for analysis of productivity or negotiation of contacts. We know MGMA leaders attending the conference are looking for performance improvement solutions. Our new RVU Enhancer product allows organizations who leverage MGMA benchmarks to better analyze their performance to understand the impact of CMS changes on their Medicare and Commercial Contracts. This is an audience who understands the value of analytical reports that drive revenue improvements.”

The theme of the MGMA Medical Practice Excellence: Leaders Conference is Be Extraordinary Together. The conference will bring healthcare professionals together to choose the educational path that fits their day-to-day roles and responsibilities and offers attendees access to the latest healthcare operations, patient care, leadership, and financial education topics. The sessions this year will emphasize interactive elements and allow attendees access to 70 sessions, 120 speakers, and opportunities to network with 4,000+ peers in a state-of-the-art in-person and digital experience.
