LAS VEGAS (February 1, 2016)—You need breakfast and you want inspiration, so why not put the two together? On day three of Medtrade Spring, attendees will get the chance at The HME Breakfast Club.

Sponsored by Mediware and Laboratory Tactical Consulting, the second annual HME Breakfast Club at Medtrade Spring is a great way to start the final day of the show with inspirational insights from a speaker who believes in bringing passion back to the profession.

On Wednesday, March 2, from 9:00 a.m. to 10:30 a.m., speaker Dan Afrasiabi, MBA, JD, president, Geneva Woods Pharmacy & Healthcare Services, will talk about, “Providing Great Care When Payers Say No.

For those who are eager to tackle the changing HME landscape with a positive attitude and collaborative spirit, a ticket includes breakfast, time to chat with other like-minded HME professionals, and Afrasiabi’s message of hope that comes straight from his extensive experience in the industry.

Afrasiabi leads a team of 600 employees serving thousands of patients in six states. He has seen the limitations of competitive bidding firsthand, and he does not shy away from these realities. While acknowledging several challenges, he also draws optimism from several sources.

“The demographic tidal wave of the Grey Tsunami is coming at the industry, and it is combined with the ever increasing life expectancy of the US population,” he says. “And a competitive shake-out has already taken place, resulting in far fewer competitors.”
