Horty Springer

This program is designed for physicians who serve in Medical Staff leadership positions in hospitals. ASHNHA sponsors an annual Horty Springer conference for physician leaders in Anchorage. The program is often centered on credentialing issues and developing best practices relating to initial appointment, reappointment, and clinical privileges. It covers identifying and managing the variety of peer review issues that confront physicians in their roles as leaders.

Medicare Boot Camp Training in Alaska

ASHNHA has contracted with HC-Pro to provide a custom agenda to meet the needs of Alaska PPS and Critical Access Hospital needs by organizing a Medicare Boot Camp in Alaska. Many hospitals send staff out of state to attend the Medicare boot camp training. This opportunity allows hospitals to keep people in Alaska, reducing travel time and training cost, and promote networking and collaboration among finance/revenue cycle staff in Alaska.

Please contact Debbie if you are interested in attending one of our future training or call 907-586-1790.
