His presentation is entitled, "How Health Care Reform and ICD-10 will Impact Revenue Cycle Management."

"Quality measures and payment reform as well as the HITECH Act, Meaningful Use, and Accountable Care Organizations are in the news, but the interaction with these standards and HIPAA mandates such as ICD-10 are just beginning to be understood.
