Quality Sessions at AHCA/NCAL Convention: Get Inspired – Keep Focused – Improve Care


Every year, AHCA/NCAL hears from our members that the education sessions provided during the annual AHCA/NCAL Convention & Expo are relevant, high-quality and important to improving the systems, processes, and ultimately the care they provide.

This year’s Convention is filled with education sessions that will inspire and provide you with additional tools to achieve high-quality care. To some extent, all of the education sessions will impact the Quality Initiative goals. For example, data sessions will help you understand how to use data to track and trend your performance in the various measures.  Below are some of the education sessions that particularly relate to the Quality Initiative goals. For more information about each session, click here.
