Gainesville, FL – May 1, 2017 – The groundbreaking conference, OPIE Con, brought together more than 170 attendees, speakers, and sponsors from across the United States. The event took place in Baltimore, MD and was focused on building high-performing O&P offices.
OPIE Software hosts OPIE Con for all Futura and OPIE users. This event is unlike anything provided anywhere else in the O&P profession, and it includes 4 educational tracks – Administrative & Compliance, Billing, Futura, and Practitioner. In addition to the specific educational tracks, business expert and Keynote Speaker Spencer Penhart, took the event to the next level by leading highly engaging sessions that left attendees feeling energized with concrete action plans and new ideas to take back to their practice.
From keynote sessions that invigorated attendees, to educational tracks throughout the day and an evening reception that includes food, music, a photo booth and libations, attendees worked hard and played hard.
Paul Prusakowski, CEO of OPIE Software said, “We recognize we could stop at just the sale of the software and let people figure it out, but what we have found to be beneficial is to create this community.” When people come to OPIE Con it creates a user community that is not found in many other software packages.”
Attendee Cassandra Gorman from Independence Prosthetics-Orthotics, Inc. said, “It is nice to see what other practices are doing. You spend so much time with your group of people that you don’t get the chance to see fresh faces and processes. I have taken away a lot of ideas from OPIE Con that I want to incorporate into my own practice.”
This event is not only a time to get great education on OPIE and Futura software systems, but it is also a time where attendees have the chance to network with other folks within the O&P profession. Our sponsors for this event included ZirMed, PEL, Cascade, and A+ Transcription Services.
OPIE Con is the second step in our educational offerings. The step beyond that is the Fundamentals of Excellence (FOE) Conference coming up from October 12-14, 2017 in Leesburg, VA. FOE is geared towards creating a culture that promotes personal and professional growth while gaining an understanding of team dynamics. Find out more about FOE at https://tinyurl.com/m5juh2w.
