The advent of Alternative Payment Models has accelerated the demand for practices to improve care delivery and associated outcomes. This requires a highly skilled team working collaboratively and at the top of their license. The role of the Medical Assistant (MA) can be a key contributor to elevating the performance of the entire team.

Although often underutilized, MA's are a valuable and adaptable resource within the practice. When provided the opportunity to grow and develop new skill sets, they can perform an array of services allowing other team members to focus on those services restricted by more advanced training and licensure. 

Join us to discuss practical strategies to elevate the role of the Medical Assistant and mitigate the challenges and potential barriers to progress. 

During this session we will: 

 

Lori Lahrmann-O`Hearn (Moderator) RN, BSN, HealthTeamWorks, Healthcare Learning Faculty

The quest for value over volume requires a foundation of advanced primary care with new patient centered systems of care and team-based roles that are sustainable.  This means that a primary care practice must be both a great place to work—providing meaning and purpose—and a thriving business. This webinar will explore the business case and return on investment opportunities for successful advanced primary care and provide ideas and examples from practices that have achieved this “fifth aim”—business vitality and growth.

During this session we will:

David Ehrenberger (Moderator) MD, HealthTeamWorks, Chief Medical Officer

Effective community-clinical partnerships to address social determinants of health can powerfully impact an organization’s ability to manage the total cost of care.  Even when practices are successful in improving quality of care, adapting to changing payment models, and addressing burnout, many remain challenged to meet the needs of their highest risk patients. Practices, providers and healthcare leaders must learn to engage and team with their community agencies to provide whole-person care for vulnerable patients. Join us to learn about “community-clinical linkages” and how to become a catalyst for this new frontier of primary care collaboration.
