Each year AAPC sponsors the healthcare conference, HEALTHCON, which was originally scheduled to take place at Disney’s Coronado Springs Hotel in Orlando, April 5-8. Every year the event provides excellent networking opportunities, with thousands of medical coders and healthcare professionals participating.
With an expansive platform to earn continuing education units (CEUs), and prominent speakers, the HEALTHCON event has excellent industry participation year after year. Unfortunately, this year, as with all organized events, the COVID-19 emergency prevented HEALTHCON 2020 from going on as normal, and left organizers in a predicament. However, after much deliberation, and exploration of alternative solutions, AAPC decided to carry on with the event with a promise to deliver the same expectations, only virtually.
Here are some highlights shared by Axea’s team member, Tara Roberts, who experienced all three days of the virtual event earlier this week.
Understanding a virtual experience may not be what participants initially signed up for, AAPC accommodated registrants appropriately.
In addition to the original resources and benefits that came with registration, the virtual event provided all previously registered attendees with several extra benefits, including:
In a virtual experience, the face to face networking of an event with other industry professionals is certainly missed, though there is a certain sense of unity amongst participants. In every other respect, the three-day virtual conference was a success, and did indeed deliver all that was promised, with a few extra bonuses!
