The Annual Conference is the largest gathering of administrators of renal dialysis facilities. The conference is designed to address the needs of renal administrators, nurse managers, nurses, medical directors, technicians and financial/billing managers, representing hospital, university and free standing facilities.
The Conference features a one-day Administrators workshop followed by a two-day conference, which includes an exhibit program. Sessions address the issues impacting dialysis management and ESRD care. The program traditionally features member experts and outside consultants, which have included representatives from government agencies (CDC, CMS) as well as legislative, legal and business professionals. The event also provides opportunity for networking, with group meals, social events, regional meetings and a two day exhibit program. Exhibitors include vendors representing healthcare supply and services, renal publications, pharmaceutical companies, devices, water treatment, waste management, computer software and more.
This event rotates between locations in the east, west and central parts of the country. It routinely attracts over 500 participants and 60+ vendor exhibitors.
The NRAA supports members from all types of providers including freestanding, hospital-based and national chains through the weekly e-mail newsletter, “Renal Watch”, the Annual Meeting, periodic workshops and other meetings.
