Registration includes both days of live sessions and the recordings following the event. The AMRPA Advanced IRF Boot Camp will feature topics pertaining to managed Medicare issues, Medicare admission criteria, clinical documentation integrity, underutilization of IRFs inside larger organizations, and IRF PAI reporting. We will also cover the latest developments with the Review Choice Demonstration expansion, hospital workforce development and leadership skills, timely legislative and regulatory updates, and much more.

AMRPA is proud to introduce a new certification program designed to support new ‎leaders and promote consistency and professionalism in rehabilitation management. Current Medical Rehabilitation Management Certification (MRMC) certificants will receive a 20% discount off the registration rate in recognition for their demonstrated commitment to advancing the IRF field. Many of the AMRPA Advanced IRF Boot Camp educational sessions are directly relevant to the MRMC exam. If you are interested in learning more about the MRMC program, please visit our webpage.
