The Future is Now: How Physicians Can Thrive through the Transformation of Health Care Delivery

Credits: 1

Course Description

Physicians who understand the ramifications of medicine’s rapidly-changing practice standards will be better prepared and have a tremendous advantage over their colleagues who are not. With financial compensation tied to quality measures and patient satisfaction, physicians are stressed for time and tools to implement all that is being asked of them. Patient safety pioneer John Nance discusses the substantial steps you can take now to thrive in the new delivery system that is based on value and population health. Learn how you can benefit from this pivotal opportunity to improve your professional practice and satisfaction scores!

  • Cite the challenges they face in transitioning from a fee-for-service model to a value-based, population health-oriented system of care
  • List the strategies they will use to improve teamwork and care coordination
  • Describe key drivers of changes in physician culture that will promote accountability
