The ABCs of the ASC: AAOE Workshop

Join us in Chicago for a double header. This year, we’re going all day with the OOSS Symposium and Luncheon in the morning and a special AAOE master class workshop for the ASC in the afternoon. We’ll begin with Power Board, an OOSS original production featuring our expert change agents with their best advice on instituting and managing change to improve outcomes and efficiency, ensure organizational stability, and optimize reimbursement. Lunch follows.

As always, the OOSS Symposium and luncheon is free for OOSS members and their guests but does require an RSVP.

The afternoon session requires a separate AAOE registration and fees payable through the AAOE website.
