The Healthcare Financial Management Association (HFMA) has announced it is canceling its 2020 Annual Conference and reimagining the event as an online experience. The in-person conference was to be held June 28 to July 1 in San Antonio, Texas.
“Due to COVID-19 concerns, we have made the difficult decision to cancel our Annual Conference,” said HFMA Senior Vice President of Content Strategy and Delivery Mary Mirabelli, FHFMA. “The entire healthcare community is focused on navigating a public health crisis, with the short-term outlook remaining unclear, so we believe this is in the best interests of our members, faculty and business partners.”
As an alternative to the Annual Conference, Mirabelli said HFMA is already working on an online conference with a session lineup that reflects COVID-19 and its impact on healthcare. Association members will be able to attend the virtual event at no charge. More details will be released in the coming weeks.
