"If you would like to take your next step towards a happy, highly productive, low stress professional life...this is it. Every leader should hear this message."
Keynote: "You've Been Upgraded", June 2014
Cruze stated, “We chose Kevin as our keynote speaker because his presentation is right in line with the goal of this year’s Knoxville MGMA Fall Conference. We wanted a speaker who could equip our local leaders with competencies to not only assist themselves but also help influence the behaviors of employees. With all the changes going on in healthcare leaders now more than ever have to develop creative solutions to improving or at least sustaining productivity levels while at the same time maintaining a high level of morale. Kevin’s presentation will hopefully introduce us to new ways we can meet these challenges and ultimately help employees feel more connected to the mission.”
Mr. McDaniel will be delivering his keynote address, "You've Been Upgraded" that has received "Best I've Heard" reviews" and "the highest speaker evaluation ratings" from conference participants. "You've Been Upgraded" is all about discovering how to show up in the world productive with less stress, more fun and as the best version of you possible…today.
NEED A SPEAKER?
The demands on management in all ambulatory care settings—group practices, hospitals and clinics of all kinds—have and continue to change dramatically. Traditional management approaches are being tested and the field is being propelled forward faster than many would like to acknowledge. The environment within which the ambulatory care administrator and physician now function presents an incredible array of complexities and challenges. At the same time the rewards, the excitement and the opportunities are also dramatically increasing. Clinic managers and physicians must increase their knowledge, broaden their perspectives and develop new skills in this environment.
The Medical Group Management Association (MGMA) is the national professional association for medical group managers and physicians engaged in medical group administration. This national organization has over 15,000 members representing over 6,000 medical groups. Through ongoing educational programs and consultative services, the MGMA is making a substantial contribution to improve the management expertise of their members.
The Medical Group Management Association is represented at the state level through the Tennessee Medical Group Management Association (TMGMA). Nine medical group managers desiring to share common experiences and gain additional knowledge of state and federal programs impacting their respective practices formed the state organization on February 19, 1972 in Nashville, Tennessee. The TMGMA has grown to include approximately 500 members and has its annual meeting in the spring each year.
