2020 Annual Conference

San Diego, CAAMGA 2020 Annual Conference
March 25-28, 2020
San Diego 

AMGA’s Annual Conference is heading west next year! Make your plans to join us in San Diego next March for a three-day, interactive forum. 

Our meeting connects medical group and health system leaders with their true peers—others in your role looking for solutions to challenges related to delivering high-quality, efficient, and affordable patient care. Unlike medical conferences that focus on specialty skill acquisition or bring together all levels of professionals, the AMGA Annual Conference is specifically tailored to medical group and health system executives directly responsible and accountable for the success of their organizations. 

Call for Presentations

AMGA 2020 Annual Conference
March 25-28, 2020
San Diego Convention Center
San Diego, California

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 you try to successfully run complex healthcare delivery systems with this goal in mind, you’re are confronted with new obstacles. Where do you 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 2020 Annual Conference. To secure your spot, please review this information and submit your proposal by July 12, 2019.

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 health care 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 tools, documents, and programs that can be shared with peers; and 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
