"The Physician Advisor of 2017:  Navigating the Continuum of Care”

 

The American healthcare system is under a rapid time of change as care delivery from the pre-hospital, hospital, post-acute, and chronic disease management spaces are in an evolving state of flux. The Physician Advisor of 2017 needs to be engaged in this transformative process and must be able to interface across the silos of care delivery to serve as a bridge to aid in optimizing care for the patients we serve.  The 2017 SEPAS/ACPA National Physician Advisor Conference will bring thought leaders from all aspects of care to share insights on how the Physician Advisor can be the best value-add to the spectrum of the care team’s needs.

 

The 2017 S.E.P.A.S./ACPA National Physician Advisor Conference is North America's premier conference dedicated to the role of the
Physician Advisor

This year's conference is co-sponsored by the Southeast Physician Advisor Symposium (S.E.P.A.S.), the American College of Physician Advisors (ACPA, America's leading non-profit Physician Advisor membership association), through the joint providership of Spartanburg Regional Healthcare System. The conference will focus on the critical elements necessary to optimize the profession of physician advising and present strategies for success for Physician Advisors, Case Managers, nurses and other members of the healthcare team.
