…where fame and fortune await those who help keep pediatric practices alive and independent!

July 2009 Pediatric Practice Management Coding Event!

t's official - go sign up.  Space is limited.  Similar to our previous endeavors but two days, a lot of content, and the largest collection of pediatric practices in one place all year long.  The best part -it's at Disney, you bring your family!

It's also substantially cheaper than other events held at the same location (or elsewhere) around the same time...

PCC is pleased to announce that this summer's Pediatric Coding & Practice Management Conference will take place at Walt Disney World® Resort, Florida from July 23-24 2009.

We are planning an exciting conference packed with pediatric practice
management education in a fun-filled learning environment. Mark your
calendars or begin to plan your trip to Walt Disney World® Resort now.

New! Register Now!

I'd also like to call attention to these archived teleconferences about the Medical Home model that everyone with interest in this issue should listen to:
