VENDORS WANTED We are excited to present our 2019 regulatory intensive at the Heathman Lodge in Vancouver! Exhibiting and sponsorship are terrific ways to educate and promote your products and services and to support OHPCA’s and WSHPCO’s outstanding educational outreach to Oregon and Washington hospices and palliative care providers; last year, we had 133 hospice managers, administrators, billing specialists and physicians in attendance. Sponsors will be recognized in the program materials and website, and all vendors will be provided with one draped table + chair, wireless internet access and one 110v electrical outlet. All AV equipment should be provided by the exhibitor. All vendors are invited to attend all conference sessions. We want you to be a real part of our conference. The Exhibitor fee is for one person and includes breakfast, lunch and snacks. For companies sending more than 1 exhibitor, an additional fee of $100 per person applies. We look forward to including you in our 2019 Spring Intensive! If we can answer questions or help you with your decision to come, please let us know. Please complete the form below before February 19 to lock in your spot.
PROGRAM DESCRIPTION Regulatory issues remain the focus of this annual conference, jointly sponsored by the Oregon Hospice and Palliative Care Association and the Washington State Hospice & Palliative Care Organization. From dealing with public reporting of quality measures and other hospice data, documenting for hospice eligibility, strategizing for future developments in a possible “Serious Illness” benefit, as well as preparing for a future standardized patient assessment tool, there are still numerous significant regulatory compliance hurdles facing us in the coming years. We are fortunate to once again have Judi Lund Person from the National Hospice and Palliative Care Organization and Corrinne Ball from National Government Services be able to spend time with us to bring the most up-to-the minute advice and counsel on how to survive these challenging regulatory times. In addition, we are pleased to have Jeff Myers, MIH, MMSc, PA-C joining us. Jeff will share insights about how Hospices can work with Physician Assistants since the rule has gone into effect allowing a “PA” to be a Hospice patient’s Attending Physician.
