FFATA GoLive! lunch, with the NGMA

I should have posted this a couple of days ago, so you’ll need to act quickly if you want to attend this event. The NGMA is hosting a very interesting-sounding lunch on Thursday (Valentine’s Day…awww!), with Terry Hurst of HHS as the speaker:

GoLive! FFATA Key Elements & Implementation Timetable

Thursday – February 14th

RSVP by COB February 12th

Luncheon & Video Webcast Registration Form @

Speaker: Terry Hurst, Assistant Deputy Secretary, U.S. Department of Health & Human Services, Washington, DC

Program Description

What To Expect — This training will address the Federal Financial Accountability & Transparency Act (FFATA) Database Development and status of the initial launch, as well as what to expect following FFATA GoLive! The speaker will address the background and intent of the Act; FFATA data-flow; the mandated timelines of implementation; and current status of implementation.

I’m actually peeved that I can’t attend this month (nothing romantic planned, more’s the pity), given the agenda!
