3rd Annual National CRT Conference is April 21-23, 2015 – Save the Date!

CRT Stakeholders,

Plans are being finalized for the 3rd annual National CRT Leadership and Advocacy Conference which will be held April 21st through April 23rd, 2015 at the Hyatt Regency Crystal City in Arlington, Virginia.

The conference is presented through a partnership with NCART and NRRTS and will build on last year’s National CRT Conference which generated very positive feedback and high attendee ratings.

The goal of the 2015 National CRT Conference is to bring CRT stakeholders together in one place for high value education, networking, and advocacy. The conference allows providers, manufacturers, clinicians, consumers, and others to collectively focus on important CRT issues and activities.

The three day program includes: CRT Leadership sessions- business presentations and breakout sessions for the management teams of CRT providers and manufacturers; Funding and Advocacy sessions for all CRT stakeholders- the latest Medicare and Medicaid trends, issues, and advocacy strategies relating to CRT coverage and payment; and CELA- the historic cornerstone event for taking the CRT message directly to Congress. Here’s a summary of each day:

1.) Leadership Day – Tuesday, April 21st – CRT focused presentations for providers and manufacturers. The schedule: 7:30 am to 8:30 am Registration; 8:30 am to 5:00 pm General and Breakout sessions; 6:00 pm to 8:00 pm “CRT United” Reception.

2.) Advocacy Day – Wednesday, April 22nd – Funding and advocacy sessions for all CRT stakeholders. The schedule: 7:30 am to 8:30 am Registration; 8:30 am to 5:00 pm General and Breakout sessions; 5:00 pm to 6:00 pm Congressional Prep.

3.) Capitol Hill Day – Thursday, April 23rd – Consumers, clinicians, providers, and manufacturers will take the CRT message directly to Congress through in-person meetings on Capitol Hill. The schedule: 9:00 am to 4:00 pm Capitol Hill Visits; 5:00 pm to 7:00 pm Debriefing Reception.
