NORWALK, Conn., Oct. 25, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- When practice management experts from across the nation gather to share best practices and insights, Physicians Practice is there to report that advice directly to medical practices. That was the case this year at MGMA13, the Medical Group Management Association's annual trade show, recently held in San Diego.

Prior to the conference, Physicians Practice, the leading online community for practice management professionals, provided preview articles, podcasts, and videos helping attendees plan their approach to the three-day event and allowing non-attendees to receive the same valuable information. This year's pre-conference coverage also featured shorter versions of presentations on boosting patient satisfaction and key considerations for physician alignment.

Onsite in San Diego, Physicians Practice's team of journalists covered many of the topics on the minds of physicians and practice managers today, from avoiding a HIPAA violation to utilizing a patient portal to boost patient engagement to physician reaction to health insurance exchanges via the Affordable Care Act to ways practice staff can help reduce malpractice risk, plus much more.

All of the content from before, during, and even after MGMA13 can be found at Physicians Practice's MGMA13 Conference Insider webpage, and was delivered to more than 83,000 subscribers via daily e-newsletters.

Earlier this year, Physicians Practice received a national gold award for its trade show / conference coverage of the MGMA's 2012 annual event from the American Society of Business Publication Editors (ASBPE). Physicians Practice was awarded a national silver award for its coverage of the event in 2011 as well.

"We were honored to be recognized two years in a row by ASBPE for our coverage of the MGMA Annual Conference and think we've lived up to our reputation for premiere coverage of this event," said Keith L. Martin, executive editor for Physicians Practice. "Running a medical practice is not easy and myriad changes in the healthcare industry are making it more difficult every day. Our coverage of MGMA13 provides physicians and administrators with valuable insight from practice management experts to hopefully make that task a little bit easier."
