Business Problem: Providers are challenged with managing patient populations under legislation that demands improved quality care and they lack the resources they need to transform their practices. Team Based Care (TBC) models provide a viable solution for Providers to meet these increasing demands, and are expected to see continued growth. For these models to be successful, practitioners like the Nurse and MA, need to expand knowledge and refine their skill set – setting them up for increased opportunities on these care teams

Session Description: Healthcare roles will continue to evolve and expand as the industry shifts to a patient-centered model, like team based care. As quality remains a primary focus, you must also empower your people to take an active role in the transformation. The industry needs solutions that will unify care teams and demonstrate competencies that are at the core of your practice.

This session will provide an actionable framework to promote employee confidence and the skills needed to address the lack of resources and practice management tools dedicated to team based care. All of which are key as you strive to increase business efficiency and empower the entire team to put patients first.

10:15 am - 11:45 am Title: A Rising Tide: The Past, Present & Future of Advanced Practice Professionals (APPs)
Speaker: Sarah Freymann Fontenot, BSN, JD, CSP
Earn 1.5 CEU(s)

Many PAHCOM members have Advance Practice RNs and/or Physician Assistants in their practices; these professionals are an essential part of how PAHCOM offices deliver excellent patient care. Even so, there remain questions about contracting, supervision, and liability when APPs are part of an office staff. This program will address those issues, as well as how to reflect APPs in MACRA/MIPS reporting.

Finally, the session looks at the increasingly common independent practice of APRNs (now legal in 21+ states), the implications for small physician practices currently competing with these other providers, and lessons from the trend for states that still require physician supervision.

This program to looks at all aspects of the continually evolving role of APPs!
