Katie Sanchez
Senior Facilitator, Disney Institute

In this illuminating keynote, Disney Institute will inspire participants to be BOLD and pursue innovation to reinvigorate their patient experience. Participants will discover how Disney fosters a creative and collaborative culture that emboldens its employees to innovate their customer experiences with thoughtful technology and strategic service, and will leave inspired to do the same in their own roles!

Disney Institute uses business insights and time-tested examples from Disney parks and resorts worldwide to provide relevant illustrations and engaging stories that help you deliver long-term results. This is your opportunity to learn from a true Disney “insider.” Disney Institute facilitators have experienced the essentials of the Disney culture first-hand and, as a Disney leader, draw upon personal experience from a variety of roles performed within The Walt Disney Company. As a Disney Institute facilitator, Katie Sanchez has worked with an array of clients across the private, public, and social sectors and ultimately is prepared to help you operationalize and sustain business results at your own organization through leadership, employee engagement, service, and more.

Legislation Introduced to Alleviate Impact of Conversion Factor Cut for 2021

Nov 09, 2020

Last month, two bills were introduced in the House proposing solutions to the estimated 10.6% Physician Fee Schedule conversion factor cut expected to go into effect January 1, 2021.  The bills offer some relief to the cut, but do not reflect a comprehensive or long-term solution.  AAPM&R has therefore chosen to remain neutral regarding these bills. 

Your Academy continues to advocate for a permanent solution to the conversion factor cut while maintaining the important payment increases to office and outpatient evaluation and management services.
