namss 2019 cvo call for abstracts

Share your unique CVO knowledge and expertise, or encourage a colleague to share theirs, by submitting an abstract for the opportunity to present at the 2nd Annual CVO Excellence Symposium, taking place October 19–20, 2019 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

The deadline to submit an abstract is Monday, February 18, 2019.

The NAMSS CVO Excellence Symposium is designed for medical services professionals who currently work in credentials verification organizations (CVOs). In 2018, the inaugural two-day event focused on vital discussions pertaining to the state of the CVO, staffing models, legal and regulatory issues, technology and innovation, and streamlining various processes from the top-down. More than 200 CVO professionals participated in the inaugural event.

Proposal Considerations
This year, we are looking for a dynamic variety of presentations that will help participants bring new knowledge and effective processes to their credentials verification offices. CVO Excellence Symposium attendees mainly represent CVO management positions and bring with them varying experiences and knowledge. When drafting your proposal, please consider which CVO “setting” your presentation topic will address, as well as what the important takeaways from your session will be. Attendees often seek out best practices and sample forms that they can use in their professional setting.

Sessions must be educational in nature and must not include any sales, product, or marketing/promotional information. Speakers are encouraged to prepare and present original material. Ownership of all session materials remains with the authors/presenters. Speakers must also obtain usage rights for any copyrighted materials prior to their submission to NAMSS.

Accepted Abstracts
If your abstract is selected for presentation at the CVO Excellence Symposium, NAMSS will provide you the following:

  • Complimentary Symposium Registration
  • A stipend of $500 per speaker
  • Invitation to the President's Reception held during the NAMSS 43rd Educational Conference & Exhibition, taking place immediately following the CVO Excellence Symposium
