07/08/2017 - Spring Happenings
PAHCOM of Ventura County held our annual Spring Workshop and Vendor Exhibit co-sponsored by Ventura County Medical Association on May 3, 2017. Kudos to Karen Downey and the rest of the committee for putting on one of our best Spring Workshops yet! The dynamic Sara Caputo was our keynote speaker. She is the founder of Sara Caputo Consulting—a coaching, consulting, and training business based in Santa Barbara, CA. She is also the author of “The Productivity Puzzle: What’s Your Missing Piece?” She is a nationally recognized expert in her field and her work has been featured in Working Woman, Success, and Forbes among others. Sara Caputo‘s workshop focused on the professional development of The Productivity Puzzle. She gave us tools on how the puzzle fits together; Physical Systems, Time and Calendar, Plan and Maintain and To Do Task. Some of the topics she touched on were; time management, increasing your creativity and productivity in your professional and personal life’s, defining your workspace, being more efficient on paper and in your digital workspace, tools and systems to help you stay in the front of your brain, lengthen your cognitive budget by using tools and systems that work in your life, being proactive instead of reactive, go vertical instead of horizontal, hour of power, being realistic and setting boundaries, end your day and your week with order, the benefits of getting stuff out of your head, time blocking, and daily mind dump. There were so many useful/powerful tools it’s too much to list them all. Our vendors were incredibly supportive and generous as always. We also had ACO updates from Mary Carr from the Ventura County Medical Association. Dr. Stephen Reidy presented “Stop the Med-ness”. He had a light-hearted approach from a doctor’s perspective on practice management. He had an understanding of what Office Managers go through on a daily basis from solving the easy to the not so easy issues we’re faced with daily in the medical practice; Employee infighting, contract disputes and scheduling nightmares to name a few. We ended this educational day with a little levity from our own Denise Carter-Laughter is the Best Medicine. May 24th we had our regular monthly PAHCOM meeting. Ronda L. Doonan, PsyD presented, “Preventing/Relieving Burnout for Medical Managers”. She went over signs of burnout, the personal cost of burnout, contributing factors, associated risk, prevention, emotionally mature management, team building, and some tools to take back to our offices for Relieving Burnout! May 25th President Kim Krause and Vice President Bonnie Landsman represented the Ventura PAHCOM Chapter at the VCMA (Ventura County Medical Association) monthly dinner membership meeting. June 28th Gene Brown COO of Office Works was our guest speaker. Mr. Brown put on an engaging roundtable discussion with our group about staffing our offices with experts. Such as, where to find good people, how to quickly filter through resumes, behavioral interviewing-how to hear what they aren’t telling you, timing is everything and references-what they don’t say says a lot. He was very engaging and encouraged interactive participation.
