Annual Training Conference – Virtual Edition

The NHCAA Institute for Health Care Fraud Prevention’s Annual Training Conference (ATC) is recognized as the single-most important health care anti-fraud event, spotlighting trends and emerging schemes. Building on the success of the 2020 Virtual Annual Training Conference, NHCAA has determined that we will move forward with a Virtual Annual Training Program for 2021 from November 16-19.

Registration closes at 4:00 pm ET on Tuesday, November 9, 2021.

The Annual Training Conference will offer valuable training on trending schemes and critical investigative skills, interactive networking with attendees and learning from faculty, and an Expo Hall filled with expertise on anti-fraud solutions and insights.

While we may not be able to be in person again this year, we can once again join together online and immerse ourselves in high-quality training.

  • Enjoy online discussions on the challenges and opportunities on working investigations.
  • Dedicate time to think, discover, and drive your organization’s success with investigations.
  • Enhance your skills to identify red flags, analyze data, and discover new tips.

ATC Keynote Speaker:

The Opening Keynote speaker at this year’s Virtual Annual Training Conference is Curt Steinhorst, an expert in human behavior, and the bestselling author of Can I Have Your Attention?: Inspiring Better Work Habits, Focusing Your Team, and Getting Stuff Done in the Constantly Connected Workplace. This timely conversation will provide us with insights on how to improve our workplace productivity, culture, and communication in this age of distraction, and will offer a thought-provoking and educational kickoff to the ATC on November 16, 2021.
