CRT Track Adds a New Dimension to Medtrade's Expert-Led Education
This year, AAHomecare helped spearhead a fresh addition to the Medtrade education lineup: a CRT track with five sessions designed to help providers expand their product offerings, maximize repair business, effectively engage federal and state policymakers on CRT issues, improve sales, and streamline prior authorizations. With inflation, cost increases, labor shortages, and increasing scrutiny on repair processes facing CRT providers, this track provides tools to help you get ahead of the game and network with your peers in the mobility sector.

Find the AAHomecare Team at these Sessions
Find details on the new CRT track and all 41 sessions across eight educational tracks here. Only Medtrade brings together the sharpest minds in HME to help you grow your business, understand new regulatory developments, and navigate the shifting payer landscape.
