Bigger and Better: Expanded BSM Team Gathers for ASCRS•ASOA

Wednesday, April 4, 2018 9:00 AM

BSM News

Written by: Margaret Moran

BSM Consulting is actively embracing the phrase "the more, the merrier" by attending the upcoming 2018 ASCRS•ASOA Symposium and Congress in Washington, D.C., with a bigger, more comprehensive team than ever before.

For the first time, members of our recently acquired Rose & Associates and Progressive Surgical Solutions teams will be part of the BSM group attending the annual gathering. Of the nearly 20 BSM consultants and team members attending the April 13-17 meeting, a majority are scheduled to be involved in 40 meeting presentations, discussions, boot camps, and review sessions. Notable topics include coding and compliance, ambulatory surgery center operations, mergers, and practice management.

In between presentations, we encourage ASCRS•ASOA attendees to stop by BSM Booth #1315 in the Walter E. Washington Convention Center. At the booth, you can meet BSM team members in person, ask questions, and learn about our ever-expanding products and services. You can even get free coding and compliance consultations at select times.

In no particular order, below are several informative BSM presentations and sessions we think you might enjoy sitting in on. For a full BSM Consulting ASCRS•ASOA presentation lineup, complete with dates, times, locations, presenters, and topics, click here.
