Becoming a Superhero in a Perioperative World

May 3, 2021 | 1:00 – 5:30 p.m. ET

Course Overview

Hospitalists’ role in the field of perioperative medicine continues to expand in scope and has never been more critical as surgical patients age and comorbidities increase. Whether practicing in the Surgical Co-Management or Preoperative Clinic setting, hospitalists must develop and maintain proficiency in perioperative medicine in order to expertly manage chronic and acute medical conditions in surgical patients. To that end, this course will present a comprehensive review of evidence-based standards and practical application of cutting-edge literature in the field. Learners of all levels will benefit from the experience and have opportunities to explore perioperative program development.

Please note: each Advanced Learning Course will include 2 hours of pre-work that must be completed prior to the live course on May 3rd. Pre-work will be emailed one month prior to the conference start date.

Learning Objectives

  • Explore key concepts in perioperative risk assessment and risk mitigation
  • Recognize the different types of ultrasound transducers and their utility in various point-of-care ultrasound applications.
  • Review perioperative management of common and less common medical comorbidities.
  • Discuss the collaborative role of hospitalists in perioperative medicine, including Surgical Co-Management.

What Have You Done for Me Lately? Practice Management Tools for Maximizing and Demonstrating Value

May 3, 2021 | Noon – 4:45 p.m. ET

Course Overview

As U.S. hospitals face increasing financial pressures and hospital medicine groups continue to expand their footprint, virtually every HMG in the country is being challenged to improve – and demonstrate – the value it is delivering to the organization(s) supporting it. In today’s stressful and rapidly changing environment as HMGs navigate COVID, social unrest, and the call to more aggressively work to address racial disparities in healthcare, many of the traditional drivers of hospital medicine value are being overtaken by new priorities. HMGs are finding they need to look both internally as well as externally for levers to enhance their value.

Join us for this all-new pre-course, led by expert faculty who will address how we define and demonstrate value and offer practical suggestions on innovative strategies HMGs can use to improve the value they deliver. The course faculty includes co-course directors John Nelson, MD, MHM and Leslie Flores, MHA, SFHM as well as Rachel Cyrus, MD, SFHM, and Clinical Practice Director, Division of Hospital Medicine at Northwestern University and Andrew White, MD, SFHM, Program Director of Hospital Medicine at the University of Washington. These knowledgeable and entertaining speakers represent decades of experience in clinical practice, the leadership of HMGs, and consultative work with hundreds of HMGs throughout the country, but also bring a fresh perspective to the topics under discussion. The agenda includes ample time for interaction with the faculty and fellow attendees, and each session will conclude with participants developing a brief action plan to implement upon returning to their practices.

Please note: each Advanced Learning Course will include 2 hours of pre-work that must be completed prior to the live course on May 3rd. Pre-work will be emailed one month prior to the conference start date.

Learning Objectives

  • Develop a working definition of value for your HMG that incorporates the perspectives of key stakeholders, and build a collaborative framework for developing strategies to optimize hospitalist value.
  • Make adjustments to HMG operations and clinical activities to improve group performance in areas your hospital cares about, such as clinical quality, cost of care, team-based care models, and patient experience.
  • Make adjustments to HMG operations and clinical activities to improve group culture, reduce the risk of hospitalist burnout and turnover, and improve HMG financial performance.
  • Develop an effective hospitalist performance dashboard, and use it in concert with other strategies to improve how HMG value is assessed, demonstrated, and communicated throughout your organization.
