    Contains 1 Component(s) Includes a Live Web Event on 12/01/2020 at 12:15 PM (PST)

    Will Your Practice Be Ready for the Changes?   

    Good news for physicians tired of counting bullet points to assign an evaluation and management level for outpatient office visits.  Per new AMA guidelines, it's going to be a whole lot simpler.  As of January 1, 2021, physicians will select an E/M code based on total time spent on the date of the encounter or medical decision making (MDM) - whichever is most financially advantageous.  This means streamlined documentation. 

    Join us for a discussion of:

    • Which E/M services will have changes in 2021
    • CPT's new Table of Medical Decision Making - what does each element mean
    • Documenting the Elements of MDM
    • Documenting Time for New Patient and Established Patient Visits

  • Guide to Resilience: Trauma Informed Practice for Leaders: How Systems Play a Role, October 29

    Contains 1 Component(s) Includes a Live Web Event on 10/29/2020 at 6:00 PM (PDT)

    Join us in part 4 in Guild to Resilience Series. Knowledge of past series is not needed to participate in upcoming sessions, Part 1 - 3 are now available on-demand in the Learning Center.

    Thursday, October 29 | 6:00 to 7:00 PM 

    FREE for all to attend!

    Knowledge of past series is not needed to participate in upcoming sessions. Part 1-3 is now available on-demand in the Learning Center, see below for further information.

    The situations we face in our communities have impacted us all on a personal level. We are learning to manage toxic stress, thinking more about self-care, and reacting with inherent resilience. And many of us are working to manage these same issues in the workplace as leaders - whether that is in a small practice or a large health system. How we communicate with others and how we employ trauma informed practices within those work environments has impact - on us, on those we work with and on the people we serve. Now more than ever, we need a dialogue about trauma informed systems: how we can drive culture change in health care settings to ensure that real healing can occur on all levels.

    Learning Objectives:

    • Re-examine the neuro-biology of trauma and how it impacts interpersonal communication
    • Consider the role of Adverse Community Experiences and how they can exacerbate individual experiences of trauma
    • Think about trauma informed communication where power plays a role
    • Examine guidelines for communication and behaviors for leaders and systems that are trauma-informed (i.e. Safety and Stability)
