Speakers

2014 Keynote Speaker - Vicki Hitzges

Vicki provided an informative and inspiring Keynote Speech at the 2014 Seminar. For those customers that requested the link to purchase her book, please click here.

Vicki Hitzges started her career communicating with the public in the front office for the Dallas Cowboys.  Fifteen years later, she hosted their weekly TV show, “Special Edition.”

In between time, Vicki worked as a television news anchor and talk show host in Dallas, Texas where she interviewed five U.S. Presidents from Reagan to Clinton, as well as business moguls, movie stars and hall of fame athletes.  Later, she became a publicist because she knew how to get clients featured on TV and radio as well as in magazine and newspaper stories. One of her clients, motivational guru Zig Ziglar, impressed with Vicki’s creativity, urged her to speak and personally mentored her.  Within three months, Vicki had spoken from New England to New Zealand. 

Because she’s worked in communications all her life, Vicki knows the value of stories, humor, practical content, and audience interaction.  In 2004, she earned the Certified Speaking Professional (CSP) designation.  CSP is the highest earned designation awarded by the National Speakers Association to recognize proven speaking expertise and experience.  Fewer than 7% of speakers worldwide have earned this title. Vicki’s spoken across the U.S. and as far away as Qatar, Alaska, Panama, and Thailand.  

Below is a short outline of what Vicki's presentation will be at the Integra User Seminar.

"Put Away the Lawnmower, Charlie, Those Are Trees Out There"
Theme: People reach out to people who reach out.
Purpose: To build strong working and personal relationships. (People do business with people they like.)
​Quick Overview: Funny. Lots of stories. Highly interactive. Time will fly as attendees articipate in small-group activities that teach them how to shake hands (a huge number don't know how!), actively listen, encourage others, and connect. You will learn several vital skills to use at work and at home to build solid relationships that last!

 

2013 Keynote Speaker - Jason Young

Culturetopia - The Ultimate High Performance Workplace
Based on his experience as an insider at famed Southwest Airlines and consultant to dozens of other Fortune 500 companies, Jason Young offers a dramatically different approach to creating and sustaining a high performance workplace. His solution for companies is to create an organizational culture where employees can do their best work and one that will produce the desired performance outcomes in productivity, profitability, employee retention and customer satisfaction. The key is intentionally identifying and developing the essential factors that impact performance for any organization: leadership principles, management practices, team alignment and employee behavior. These are the elements that truly define organizational culture and that have the greatest impact on results.

 

2012 Keynote Speaker - Dr. Brad Kile

The 2012 Keynote Speech by Dr. Brad Kile combined C.E. credits and an engaging discourse about the changes in long term care, home infusion, and oncology providers. The Affordable Care Act (ACA) features prominently as do the ACA provisions that came into effect in 2012. These provisions include the following: new payment models, financial incentives for providers, new requirements, and opportunities to diversify and expend pharmacy services.

Three (3) live C.E. credits for pharmacists!

Class 1: Implementation schedule of the Affordable Care Act  (ACA) and key benchmarks of the law.
This program will examine the 10-year implementation schedule of the ACA and evaluate which policies are priorities for the government.  Participants will learn which policies are being implemented on time and which policies may be delayed or not implemented at all.

Class 2: Review new payment models emerging as a result of the ACA.
The program will evaluate new financial incentives for providers with Accountable Care Organizations, bundled payments, and value-based purchasing. Participants will learn about how to take advantage of new opportunities to diversify and expand their services.

Class 3: Expansion of health coverage through increases in Medicaid eligibility and the launch of HIE
Expansion of health coverage through of increases in Medicaid eligibility and the launch of Health Insurance Exchanges (HIE) – both of which are set to begin in January 2014.  The ACA guarantees that by 2014, all citizens will have access to an HEI, irrespective of the state in which they live.  The ACA also opens Medicaid eligibility to individuals under 65 years of age with income below 133 percent of the federal poverty level.   Kile and Davitian will explain the impact of expanded coverage on the demand for health care services.  The timing of this program is perfect since these major policies will have been implemented just a few weeks prior to the 2014 User Training Seminar in New Orleans.
