2019 ATC Call for Presentations

2019 Call for Presentations: Annual Training Conference

NHCAA is seeking submissions for the 2019 Annual Training Conference (ATC) being held October 15-18, in Nashville, Tennessee.  The Call for Presentations closes on March 22, 2019.  Presentation submissions will be reviewed and evaluated by the ATC Committee for inclusion in the program.  Accepted submissions will be announced in late May.    

What’s new this year?  

Session levels – Our goal is to provide additional clarification to the attendees and faculty on the session levels. Please select the session/ presentation level carefully when completing the submission form.
  • Entry - designed for individuals between 1-5 years
  • Intermediate - designed for individuals between 6-10 years 
  • Experienced - designed for individuals with over 10 years’ experience  
Session Outline – Upon acceptance, faculty will be asked to submit an outline of the educational session. This outline can help you to build your presentation.

Data Analytics – The ATC Committee is once again requesting that all submissions include a description of how data is used in the investigation, what codes were identified, and what can be replicated in other investigations.  When submitting the abstract, provide the following information:
  • What data techniques were used to find the scheme? (if applicable)
  • How do you use analytics to drive an investigation?
  • Who is the audience for the session - the investigator vs. data analyst?
  • What are the codes identified in this scheme (CPT, ICD-10, HCPCS, REV codes)?

What is important again this year? 
  • New presentations, experienced presenters- Presenters from the past are always welcome, but we request that you DO NOT submit a presentation that was already presented at a previous ATC.
  • Session take-aways - There continues to be an emphasis on ensuring that attendees take away information, skills, and tools. Presenters will be required to include a closing slide that identifies three (3) things that the audience can use back in the office on their own investigations.
  • Content categories – The ATC Committee has identified schemes and fraud topics that we would like to see included in this year’s program. We encourage you to submit presentations that address one of these areas.
