SPH Analytics Chief Medical Officer to Present at ACOFP Annual Convention

David Hanekom, M.D., F.A.C.P, Chief Medical Officer of SPH Analytics, will be presenting on how quality reporting impacts payment models at the 53rd Annual Convention & Scientific Seminars of the American College of Osteopathic Family Physicians (ACOFP) taking place April 6-9, 2016, in San Juan, Puerto Rico.

Hanekom and ACOFP Immediate Past President, Carol Henwood, D.O., FACOFP dist., will present “The Coming Wave of Value-Based Payment and Quality Reporting” on Wednesday, April 6 at 1:00 p.m. The presentation will focus on reporting quality of care as it relates to current medical practice including population health goals and regulatory performance tied to healthcare reimbursement.

Additionally, Hanekom is a Board member of the Consortium for Southeastern Hypertension Control (COSEHC).
