Special Promotion
Since participants often leave the workshops energized and eager to implement what they’ve learned, we are pleased to include in your Virtual Boot Camp enrollment a free post-workshop, one-hour consultation with our experts (limited to one free consultation per practice). You will be invited to bring into this discussion others from your practice to expose them to some of the clinical and operational enhancements introduced at the workshops, and we will propose some preliminary steps to help you achieve your goals.

Instruction will also include video simulation of procedures commonly performed in the home.

In addition, this workshop features tips and strategies related to coding and documentation, workflow and staff productivity, and demonstrating the value of HBPC. You will leave this interactive workshop with enhanced knowledge and skills you can immediately and confidently apply in your practice.
