Brightree Summit Back at Medtrade

June 26, 2017

ATLANTA – Brightree customers have two compelling reasons to make a trip to Atlanta this October—the Brightree Summit and Medtrade. Atlanta-based software stalwart Brightree will again host its Brightree Summit on day one (Oct 23) of Medtrade. The event takes place at the Omni Hotel, which is connected to Medtrade’s home at the Georgia World Congress Center in Atlanta.

“The Brightree Summit is where we unveil new products and services,” says Rob Boeye, executive vice president, HME, Brightree. “Customers hear about new enhancements and future releases. It’s a great opportunity for HME providers to learn about process improvement, increased efficiency and operational excellence.”

The event is slated to run from 8:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m., followed by a 5:30 p.m. – 7:30 p.m. Networking Event, which will also take place at the Omni Hotel. While Brightree execs will share wisdom at the daylong event, attendees at the three educational tracks (training, executive, and operations) will also hear from providers who are leveraging Brightree to improve their business operations and enhance profitability.

“There are thought leaders in this industry who do a great job with their Brightree system, and attendees will hear from them,” says Mark Blount, vice president, Marketing. “It could be someone who is best practice at intake referral or someone who has done a great job dealing with denials and/or handling audits—or it could be someone who has increased patient collections. Brightree customers will share their expertise and reveal their best practices in how to maximize results and be profitable. ”

The one-two power punch of the Brightree Summit followed by two days at Medtrade is designed to benefit providers through face-to-face interaction. “To support Medtrade, is really to support the industry,” says Blount. “We believe in face-to-face learning and networking, and we believe in the value of Medtrade. Together with the Brightree Summit, Medtrade is an invaluable chance to gain new inspiration, new knowledge, and recharge.”

“I feel there is a different vibe right now in the industry,” adds Boeye. “I think we are turning the corner. I am a realist, and I know there are still challenges with regard to reimbursement, but providers are saying, ‘Either I’m going to move forward and grow, or I’m not going to be here.’ I see a lot more of that commitment to grow, and I think optimism is growing in this industry.”
