Call for speakers: 2022 Revenue Integrity Symposium

November 18, 2021

Calling all revenue integrity experts: NAHRI is currently seeking speakers for the 2022 Revenue Integrity Symposium (RIS), to be held September 19–20 in Phoenix, Arizona.

RIS is the can’t-miss event for revenue integrity, revenue cycle, and Medicare compliance education and high-level networking—it’s also a great opportunity to hone and demonstrate your professional speaking skills.

Suggested topics

For new and experienced speakers, RIS is an excellent opportunity to share your expertise and insight with your peers.

So, what is NAHRI looking for? We’re seeking proposals on a range of topics, from regulatory analysis and updates to case studies. Whether you’re breaking down complex regulations into actionable steps or sharing lessons learned and success stories from your facility, we want to hear from you.

RIS draws a broad audience, including everyone from revenue integrity newcomers to seasoned chargemaster veterans, so don’t hesitate to submit a proposal geared toward a beginner or an advanced audience.

We’re looking for speakers to present on all aspects of revenue integrity, Medicare compliance, and revenue cycle, including, but not limited to, the following:

  • Highlights of IPPS and OPPS updates
  • Improving a revenue integrity program using analytics, metrics, and key performance indicators
  • Maintaining an up-to-date and compliant chargemaster and setting policies for charging for procedures and supplies
  • Best practices for reducing payer denials using targeted data analytics
  • Current payer audit targets and strategies to protect revenue
  • Strategies for designing and implementing a revenue integrity program, developing workflows, setting goals, and staffing
  • Efficiently addressing NCCI edits and MUEs
  • Enhancing your revenue integrity career through professional development and leadership skills
  • Understanding the impact of patient status and payer regulations
  • Developing strategies for accurately documenting, coding, and billing patient encounters and stays


If you don’t see your hot topic listed here, please write and let us know what expertise you can bring to the podium. Original ideas not included above are welcome.

Plus, this year we’re accepting speaker proposals for the following two virtual conferences:


You can submit proposals to speak at either of these events through the same application as for RIS.

How to apply

Before applying, please ensure you are prepared with the following:

NAHRI will waive admission fees for all selected speakers and co-speakers. However, 2022 RIS speakers and co-speakers will be responsible for the cost of their own travel, accommodations, and meals.
