Diagnostic imaging accreditation … maximizing reimbursement … strategic planning … capturing income opportunities … Are these some of the challenges facing your orthopaedic practice?

In these economic times, it’s more important than ever to run an efficient, cost-saving, and revenue-producing practice. Whether your practice administrator is a seasoned veteran or just starting out, the educational, networking, and hands-on opportunities available at the American Association of Orthopaedic Executives’ (AAOE) annual conference will help him or her work to achieve that goal.

Membership in the AAOE is a bargain—just $300 per person, regardless of practice size. Membership isn’t limited to practice executives; orthopaedic surgeons—particularly those in small practices or solo practitioners who manage their own practices—are also welcome. Even billing and coding staff can benefit from membership.

The AAOE annual conference will take place May 2–4, 2010, at the Anaheim Marriott in Anaheim, Calif. The normal registration fee is $650 for AAOE members, but you can save $100 if you register by Friday, March 19, 2010. Because nonmember registration is $1,150, joining the AAOE and then registering for the conference is another cost-saving measure.

Membership information, the preliminary program, and conference registration are all available online, at the AAOE Web site,

Better yet, before you leave New Orleans, stop by the AAOE Booth, #5614 in Hall F, and join or register for the conference.

Addy Kujawa is executive director of the AAOE; she can be reached at
