AMGA 2021 Annual Conference

Call for Presentations

April 15-18, 2021
Gaylord Texan
Grapevine, Texas

AMGA member organizations all share a common goal—to provide the best care with the best patient experience and find ways to lower healthcare costs. However, as they try to successfully run complex healthcare delivery systems with this goal in mind, they are confronted with new obstacles. Where do they turn to learn and network with others who are confronting similar challenges? At AMGA’s Annual Conference, leaders learn from each other how to surmount the difficulties and develop best practices. What makes this event unique is the true peer-to-peer education—leaders leading leaders, sharing their strategies so that all can achieve the common goal!
If your group has a cutting-edge strategy or you have an experience or collaboration to share with your colleagues, we invite you to present a breakout session at the AMGA 2021 Annual Conference. To secure your spot, please review this information and submit your proposal by July 31, 2020.
What We Are Looking For
AMGA is seeking original and innovative stories from leaders that will enable attendees to share with and learn from one another about how to best navigate the ever changing landscape of healthcare delivery. Sessions should include hands-on activities, exercises to engage the attendees, or other methods that promote lively participation. AMGA is specifically requesting presentations which include the patient experience, tools, documents, and programs that can be shared with peers, as well as exercises to enhance learning and provide tangible takeaways from the sessions.
Presenters will be allotted 60 minutes per session, inclusive of Q&A.
Breakout sessions are categorized based on various areas of interest to healthcare teams. Below are some suggested topics within the following themes:

Leadership, Governance, and Culture [+]

Technology and Telemedicine [+]

Patient-Centered Care [+]

Efficient Operations and Finance [+]

Review Process
The proposals will be reviewed by AMGA’s Annual Conference Planning Team, which is comprised of your peers—physicians and administrative leaders from AMGA’s member groups. When selecting topics and speakers, we will be asking the question, “How can attendees use this information when they return to their jobs after the conference?”
Throughout the evaluation process, we will use the following criteria:
  • Timeliness and innovation of topic
  • Practical applications
  • Data and outcomes
  • Specificity and quality of content
  • Interaction/audience participation opportunity
  • Level of commercial bias
