Plan to Attend the 11th Annual Brain Injury Business Practice College


The Brain Injury Association of America (BIAA) has announced that New Orleans is the site of its premier brain injury business conference in 2016. The 11th Annual Brain Injury Business Practice College will be held at the New Orleans BioInnovation Center February 22-24, 2016.

As one of the only conferences in the United States geared toward brain injury business professionals, the BIAA Business Practice College has become well known for offering three days of topical sessions focused on the issues most important to brain injury program leadership teams including CEOs, COOS, CFOs, program administrators and managers, human resource directors, sales directors and marketing professionals.

“In the ever-changing healthcare environment that we are in, it is vital that we as a field work together to understand the threats and opportunities we are facing,” said David Harrington, M.B.A., OTR/L, CBIST, Vice President/COO, Centre for Neuro Skills. “This includes evaluating and responding to the market, improving our clinical and business processes, and discussing how we engage and retain a talented workforce.”

The three-day practice college will cover the issues most affecting the current healthcare landscape and focus on how brain injury programs can respond in a way that has a positive impact on their organization’s survival and those they serve. Session topics include:

  • The current legislative and political landscape and trends that we can anticipate
  • The importance of advocacy and the impact on business and access to care
  • Evaluation of external forces and conditions on an organization’s survival and growth
  • Trends in the insurance environment including strategies to align with funders to promote access to care
  • The accreditation landscape and its role in strategic planning and service delivery
  • Strategic planning and how to develop and deploy plays effectively
  • The importance of the organizational culture and how to engage, motivate and retain a talented workforce
  • Case study discussions covering session topics and evaluating trends, threats and opportunities

“The BIAA Business Practice College brings it all together for three days of thought-provoking discussions and I guarantee that attendees will leave with ideas and action items that can and will positively affect their organizations,” said Harrington.
