The Changing Landscape in Physician Communication

(for physicians; others are welcome to participate) 

 

  Presented by Kenneth E. Rhea, M.D., FASHRM

 

Description: The ways physicians are communicating with other physicians, advanced practice providers and patients have exploded — and may lead to miscommunication or a failure to communicate. Medical adverse events, delays in diagnosis or treatment, and medical malpractice claims have been associated with communication issues. Strategies to address risk areas of communication, both verbal and written (such as medical records, patient portals, texts and emails) will be addressed to help improve your communication in this ever-changing healthcare landscape.

QPP: Q and A

(for physicians and their practice staff; others are welcome to participate) 

 

  Presented by Natalie B. Cohen, MBA, MHA

 

Description: October 1 begins the last 90-day period for reporting in the third performance year of the QPP, and the penalty for non-participation has increased to 7%. If your practice hasn't done anything yet, you can still avoid a Medicare penalty in 2021! If you are currently collecting data, you can still review and evaluate your QPP strategy.

Participation in the Quality Payment Program can also help you mitigate your malpractice risk through tracking and improving quality care (Quality Measures), increasing patient engagement and satisfaction (Improvement Activities) and improving communication using secure electronic transmissions between providers and with patients (Promoting Interoperability).
