2015 Annual Meeting
September 30-October 2, 2015
Royal Sonesta Hotel New Orleans
New Orleans, LA
The 11th NAMSAP Annual Meeting & Educational Conference took place from September 30 – October 2, 2015 at the beautiful Royal Sonesta Hotel in the heart of New Orleans, LA. The festivities kicked off with three pre-conference sessions that gave attendees an added opportunity to obtain their valuable continuing education credits, and continued that afternoon with the general conference kickoff. Upwards of 150 attendees descended onto The Big Easy for three full days of educational seminars and networking opportunities.
Consistent with NAMSAP’s support of the use of Evidence Based Medicine (EBM) guidelines in projecting future medical needs, several of the presentations this year discussed the application of these guidelines to specific injuries and opioid use. The information relayed by our panels of experts undoubtedly equipped our members with additional tools and resources needed to further encourage the implementation of these guidelines at CMS. Additionally, NAMSAP was able to hold Legal and Allocator Breakout Sessions that allowed the presenters to dive deep into their topics and interact on a more personal level with the attendees. These sessions offered up much more detail than what can typically be given during a general session. Rounding out the event, panelists from across the country presented on topics ranging from the always controversial Liability MSAs, to the Affordable Care Act and Its Effect on MSAs, to Perspectives on MSP Compliance from the end user.
The Annual Meeting Subcommittee again worked tirelessly to provide a wonderful conference, and is already hard at work in the planning stages for 2016. Be on the lookout in the coming weeks for information on next year’s Annual Meeting & Educational Conference as it will surely be another you will not want to miss!
