Topic: ADEPT™ Workflow: The Five Pillars of Practice Performance
Making a practice work requires constant attention to the way the work and processes are accomplished. Frequently new requirements are layered upon old processes, making complex work more complicated. Using the ADEPT™ workflow model, practice leaders can assess their practices and look for ways to reduce complication in Application, Distinction, Effectiveness, Profitability and Talent (ADEPT™). The margins in procedural medicine are eroding with an increased expectation that all physicians and practitioners will own responsibility for the cost of care across either an episode or a continuum of care. This workshop will look at the hidden costs in the way work does or does not get done, concepts that can quickly and effectively change complications and practical application of tools that will help you recognize where the opportunities reside.
Panel facilitator: Debra Wiggs, FACMPE
Topic: The Platinum Rule: A panel conversation about diversity in the medical practice.
The Platinum Rule is a highly-regarded philosophy in the education community and among intercultural businesses, which states “do unto others as THEY would do unto themselves.” The fundamental empathy found in the Platinum Rule takes into consideration the diverse perspectives of everyone we work with or care for. How can we learn to leverage it as a platform for diversity conversations in healthcare? This perspective shifts the responsibility for understanding perceptions and experiences in a way that allows for shared learning and communication instead of a linear, or unilateral, perspective. Join us for this innovative workshop to discuss the challenges and opportunities created by using bilateral conversations, ideas, and concepts to foster diversity awareness.

Topic: Using Your Data Advantage to Tackle Transformation
Utilizing evidence based decision models means you must have identifiable, understandable, and usable data before you. In an environment of EHRs, clinical decision support systems, and practice management systems our businesses are flush with data and short on practical applications for using it in more meaningful ways. As many medical groups attempt to navigate the demands of transitioning into alternative payment models, they struggle to find ways to effectively communicate the unique quality and cost benefits they bring to the community. Tackling transformation requires providing the consistent measurable and perceived value for your consumers; the patients, payors, and referral sources. Patient satisfaction, cost of care data, outcomes and quality metrics are needed to optimize business performance. This session will give you the structure necessary to use your data to your advantage.
