What are the annual Provider Education Summits?
You may have heard about the The Provider Education Summits (PES), but what are they and who are they for? Simply put, the PES is a series of healthcare education events for Utah’s provider community, specifically billers, coders, and office managers.
Hosted by UHIN, the summits are a collaboration between multiple healthcare organizations and feature a wide range of engaging subjects, including the ever-popular Payer Panel. Sessions typically cover important topics, such as Medicaid/Medicare, audits, compliance, denials/rejections, payer reimbursements, appeals, EDI basics, and documentation improvements.
What started in 1998 as a single room of tables staffed by local payer and practice management teams answering questions from a few dozen provider staffs, has now grown to a four-location summit that attracts more than 450 attendees each year. A diverse range of provider settings are represented, allowing excellent collaboration and networking opportunities.
In 2020 there will be more than a dozen separate breakout sessions from experts throughout the community and the Payer Panel will feature as 15 payer representatives participating in an hour-long Q&A session. Vendors and payer organizations are also part of a separate vendor hall where they can engage with attendees throughout the day.
As a non-profit organization, UHIN is dedicated to inspiring, educating, and connecting Utah’s healthcare community. The annual PES events will continue to play a vital role in that vision.
