Qual IT Conference - Fall 2018


Join your peers and outside speakers at this two-day convening of health centers across our "Qual IT" Health Center Controlled Network as we share best practices and learn from subject matter experts. The Qual IT conference will address a range of topics essential to health centers, including behavioral health integration, revenue cycle management, IT security, and more. There is no fee for Qual IT members to attend this event, though health centers are responsible for covering travel expenses for their participants.

We have several new topics at the conference this year, including Coding for Behavioral Health Services, Trauma Informed Care, and Preparing for HRSA Site Visits.
