Join us at the 2020 National Physician Advisor Conference
April 27-29, 2020 | Loews Portofino Bay Resort

What started as the Southeast Physician Advisor Symposium (SEPAS) has morphed into the National Physician Advisor Conference (NPAC), fully endorsed and promoted by the American College of Physician Advisors (ACPA). We are excited to announce that our next conference will be held April 27-29, 2020 in Orlando at the Loews Portofino Bay Hotel, 5601 Universal Blvd, Orlando, FL.

Over the last number of years, the conference focus has broadened significantly. No longer simply the most well-known primer for physicians entering the field, the 2020 National Physician Advisor Conference (NPAC 2020) is expanding into deeper content including collaboration with multiple health system departments. NPAC 2020 promises to be another energetic gathering of Physician Advisors including those specialized in utilization, clinical documentation integrity, revenue cycle, and pediatrics along with other case management professionals from across the country. The scheduled speakers include outstanding thought leaders from this profession as well as nationally recognized authorities involved in regulatory affairs and medical necessity screening procedures.

Early Bird pricing is available now through March 2, 2020. Click on the Conference Agenda and Outline button to learn more about what NPAC 2020 will offer. We look forward to seeing you in Orlando in April!
