Clinician's Perspective

Clinician's Perspective

As a family physician I have not one but two jobs these days: take great care of my patients and continually improve my practice. I look forward to working with the practice improvement facilitators in the Great Lakes Practice Transformation Network to help me do both of these jobs better. An extra pair of skilled hands will be a welcome addition to our improvement team.John Hickner, MD, MSc Professor and Head, Family Medicine University of Illinois at Chicago

QI Champion Training to Save Time, Money, Patients, and Peace of Mind
Wednesday, March 29, 2017, 8 a.m.-5 p.m. (PST), San Diego Convention Center, San Diego, CA
GLPTN-enrolled clinicians are invited to enroll in this one-day ACP Center for Quality-sponsored course designed to train clinician participants to understand strategies to enhance team-based care through QI; to develop a QI project outline with the input of national experts and peers; to practice communicating QI goals to your team, colleagues, patients, and leadership; to consider strategies to engage diverse patient populations and address health disparities; and to become a QI champion, serving as a leader in your practice, region, or health system. The course is intended for clinicians interested in learning more about quality improvement and taking those skills back to their practices; and not for non-clinicians or practice managers. 30 subsidized slots are available on a first-come, first-served basis. To enroll, send your name, contact information and PTN affiliation here no later than Feb. 10, 2017. (American College of Physicians SAN)


AMA/MGMA 2017 Collaborate in Practice: Partnering for Practice Transformation Conference
April 9-11, 2017, at the Sheraton Grand Hotel, Chicago, IL
Learn how small changes can make tremendous positive differences in how your practice runs. The conference will offer a range of practical, proven approaches to help clinicians achieve the “quadruple aim” of improving the work life of health care professionals; reducing costs; enhancing the patient experience; and improving population health. The unified learning atmosphere allows both physicians and administrators to share and gain practical, actionable solutions to the challenges they currently face in small and medium practices.
