- Remarkable Content – OPIE-led educational events are created to be real-world, to leave you with a practical To-Do List for when you get back to your practice, and to give you the latest information about how to survive in the rapidly changing healthcare world.
- Experienced Presenters – Every presenter at OPIE Con has worked directly with or in an O&P practice for years. We understand the increased challenges that you face and we will provide you with battle tested suggestions to improve your daily work.
- Networking – Every time we bring together our software users, we are amazed at the interactions that occur between attendees, who may be in direct competition, but have many common interests and learn A LOT from each other.
- Entertainment – We work hard at OPIE training events, and then we try to relax with just as much effort. The OPIE Con agenda will provide you with lots of opportunity to blow off some steam while you get to know the OPIE Team and your fellow attendees.
It is a unique concept within the O&P profession that is the culmination of over a decade of training O&P folks on how to get the very most from their EMR software systems. This innovative educational event provides in-depth training to both new and existing OPIE and Futura users through seminars that create educational tracks for each major functional area of an O&P practice taught in a 2.5-day series of educational sessions.
In the past we have provided these trainings as individual events, known as Boot Camps, but we firmly believe that combining all of our smaller training events into two larger, major training efforts adds significant value to all users, while allowing for greater collaboration and connection among individual practices.
OPIE Con will help increase practice efficiency by teaching how to fully utilize the OPIE and Futura software systems, offering business education, updates on the evolving healthcare world, new patient evaluation techniques for practitioners based on data and science, and more!
The O&P profession has a unique set of challenges that our education can help you overcome. This conference is designed specifically to help everyone within an organization understand team dynamics and individual roles to build a high performing, sustainable business. You’ve heard it said that “you don’t know what you don’t know!” Here, we want to help you explore the unknown!
At the Fundamentals of Excellence, we are going to shine a light on some things you didn’t know. It’s an educational event that covers everything from organizational effectiveness audits and effective change process to the full list of key questions to ask to make more effective business decisions.
We give you the knowledge you need, the peer connections to lean on as your implement these ideas and a road-map that leads you through the process and takes out the guesswork.
In 2012, Scott and Paul recognized the need to help O&P practice owners take the next step in their development as business people. We invited a group of strong software and Quality Outcomes users to a tropical getaway and introduced the OPIE Leadership Conference. It was an overwhelming success which has become an annual event for owners and senior managers of O&P practices. At the meeting, Choice members throughout North America to come together to learn more about how to take themselves and their organizations to even higher levels of performance. As a part of this effort, we use a variety of business training experts who provide their experience and business knowledge from a wide range of professions to our OPIE users.
- Building a successful, small business is tough work. Having guidance from business experts can provide owners and senior managers with a great set of tools to take back to their practices to really drive their next step in the success process.
- The format of this meeting provides a great opportunity for practice owners to share their experiences and “best practices” with other owners in a non-threatening, relaxed environment.
- This annual conference is held in beautiful locations including past conferences in the Dominican Republic, Mexico, the Florida Keys and next is Grand Cayman in January 2019.
All of our OPIE events are designed to be casual so that you can relax, learn, and collaborate with other O&P folks. Business casual is our preferred dress.
