Welcome to the Future! Don't Get Left in the Past: How Your TPA Practice Can Benefit From Advancements in Technology Using Robotics, AI, and Digitization 

Presented by: Joseph Burt, ERPA, APA, QPA, Pension Plan Specialists P.C.

Date: Thursday, May 28, 2020

Time: 11:00 AM - 12:00 PM Central Time 

Continuing Education Credits: 1.00 NIPA CPE; 1.00 ERPA CPE


Let’s face it, TPAs are not always the first to embrace technology. The time and expertise of implementing it can be an obstacle, and we don’t know if the investment will be worth it. The value we bring to our clients is substantial and so is the effort it requires from both a physical and monetary standpoint. Long hours are spent on repetitious tasks that are not always a good use of time and are prone to errors. How much time and money could we save by utilizing robotics, artificial intelligence, machine learning, and digitization in our practices? Gain a deeper understanding of the basics of what any TPA can do to leverage this technology as well as the most common functions within TPA practices that do. You’ll leave with a roadmap on how to get started, the software programs to utilize, the costs associated with developing internal processes, the associated savings, and what to watch out for in the future.


This webcast is $49 for members and $99 for nonmembers.
