"Turning quality into currency: How a small regional operator improved quality to raise revenues and profits" is the title of event, which starts at 1 p.m. ET.

Scott Rifkin, M.D. the founder and managing partner of Mid-Atlantic Health Care LLC, will be the featured speaker. He'll tell how his group cut hospital re-admissions in half and successfully turned improved quality into dollars.
