Release: WSMA Health Data Conference set for Feb 28


Dear Colleagues:

As we move forward into 2014, one crucially important fact is undeniable: the financial viability and clinical success of physician practices and health systems will depend on the capture, use and sharing of health care data.

Traditional reimbursement methodologies, along with the business strategies those have driven, are going away as “volume” is replaced by “value.”

Yet many physician practices and health systems are nowhere near the level of preparedness needed to survive this sea change. The degree and pace of change facing us all is unprecedented. But if we are to succeed as organizations and as a community in meeting these new demands, now is the time to prepare.

Register now!

Please plan to join with your colleagues at the WSMA’s full day conference

Health Care Data: Business Intelligence and Predictive Analytics for Physician Practices, to be held at the SeaTac Marriott on Friday, February 28.

The program agenda is posted there for your review.  For any questions, contact

This program, chaired by Jeff Hummel, MD, MPH, is very affordably priced, thanks in large part to the generous support of our conference sponsors.

Invite your associates who have responsibility for clinical management and business management, as these two spheres of data and operational oversight are becoming increasingly interdependent, and at a more rapid pace than you may think.

On behalf of the WSMA leadership, we look forward to seeing you on Friday, February 28 at the SeaTac Marriott.


Dale P. Reisner, MD
