AAOE's 2019 Annual Conference agenda is packed with a lineup of all-star industry experts presenting on the latest trends and innovation in orthopedic practice management. To help you get to know the conference's speakers a little better, we will be spotlighting them leading up to the conference.

AAOE's 2019 Annual Conference brings to you Ryan Smith, MHA, ACHE, Vice President/Chief Operating Officer of Capital Orthopaedics and Sports Medicine, PC. You don't build a business. You build people who build your business. This is a critical concept that all leaders need to understand in today's challenging healthcare landscape. Amidst the competing priorities of long-term strategy management, daily operational issues, physician alignment and satisfaction, and external pressures impacting operations, you cannot lose sight of focusing on your most important resource: your people.

Smith recently shared some information to help you get to know more about him and his session!

AAOE: Why should attendees come to your session?

Smith: In this session, I will plan to share valuable information regarding looking at staff engagement as a key operational strategy, as well as some successes and failures in changing culture across various healthcare settings. I will also utilize one of my physician owners as a parent of the presentation to provide the physician perspective on engagement. 


AAOE: What's a fun fact about you that attendees should know?

Smith: I am secretly only coming to the conference in search of a great karaoke establishment in which I can be discovered once and for all...but really, I am a dad first to four beautiful daughters and am on Instagram solely to embarrass them! 


AAOE: What are key takeaways from your session?

Smith: Tactical examples of engagement strategies that work with real examples of implementation and timing components of this strategy.
