Time Running Out to Register for ASCA’s Winter Seminars

You still have time to register for ASCA’s 2018 Winter Seminars, January 11–13, in Las Vegas, Nevada. Sign up now to learn how to implement an effective infection prevention program, minimize your regulatory and legal risks, keep up with the latest coding and billing changes and improve your ASC’s performance with the expert insights and realworld advice these seminars will deliver.

This year’s program features three seminars: “Coding Update & Reimbursement Strategies,” “Minimizing Your Regulatory & Legal Risk” and— new in 2018—“Infection Control & Prevention Techniques for ASCs.” Each seminar offers three days of focused, intensive educational sessions designed specifically for ASC administrators, coding and billing staff, infection preventionists and other ASC staff responsible for directing and performing activities in these operational areas.

All three seminars run concurrently in the same location. When you register for one seminar, you get access to sessions from the other seminars at no additional cost.

Learn more and register. ASCA members save $100 when registering one attendee and $200 for every additional attendee.


Attend ASCA 2018 in Boston

New this year are special advanced courses designed for experienced ASC staff. One of those advanced courses will be on information technology.
