Portland, Ore., February 25, 2016

Clinicient Inc., a leader in outpatient rehabilitation business solutions, today announced open registration for EMPOWER: New Orleans, its first 2016 educational event for practice owners, therapists, and administrators. It is the fourth installment of the highly popular series, following heavily attended events in Los Angeles, Boston, and Chicago in 2015.

EMPOWER: New Orleans will be held on March 30-31. During the two-day conference, respected industry leaders will demonstrate actionable strategies for running a resilient PT, OT, and SLP outpatient rehab practice, including tips for Medicare compliance, the effective use of PT to fight the national opioid addiction epidemic, using outcomes to report the value of physical therapy, new methods for marketing your practice, and more. 

Stan Phelps, best-selling author and Ted Talk speaker, will deliver the keynote address, “Coaching for Practice Success.” Other speakers include Nancy Beckley, nationally recognized compliance expert; Ben Barron, MSPT, director of business development, ProEx Physical Therapy; and Shannon O’Kelley, MPT, president of IRG Physical and Hand Therapy. Attendees will learn how to thrive in the rapidly evolving outpatient rehabilitation environment, which is experiencing disruption on every level as the transition to value-based care continues and new models for reimbursement and care delivery emerge.

“The overwhelmingly positive response to our 2015 EMPOWER events was the proof we needed to continue the program as we progress into 2016,” said Rick Jung, CEO and chairman of Clinicient. “We want to make sure physical therapy thought leaders have a platform to discuss their most creative, bold thinking. It’s an honor to bring people together to collaborate and share their passion. As the saying goes: ‘a rising tide floats all boats.’ The genuine enthusiasm of EMPOWER attendees continues to fuel and inspire Clinicient to support physical therapists and their valued patients to the best of our ability.” 

In addition to a robust lineup of speakers, EMPOWER: New Orleans will feature two days of Clinicient University courses, a training and data-driven coaching program that equips practices with the skills needed to be as efficient and profitable as possible using Clinicient solutions.
