    Developing a System Wide Safety Net for Critical Care 

    Telehealth is increasingly applied to existing standards of care to improve provider access to patients and deliver care with improved quality at a lower cost.

    This webinar will address the opportunity to align telehealth with the ICU for Critical Care patients. Systems that support continuous monitoring with alerting tools and 24/7 access to intensivists have been shown to reduce ICU mortality and length of stay, while also impacting hospital efficiency metrics such as contribution margin and patient transfers. Tele-ICU has evolved over 2 decades in the United States and today nearly 1 in 8 ICU patients are monitored during their ICU stay with the complementary support of a Tele-ICU system. Through this webinar, models of Tele-ICU implementation will be explored that support both large urban IDNs, and smaller hospitals situated in rural areas as well as define trade-offs of a continuous monitoring application and a consult only model.

    Key learnings will address Hospital Key Performance Indicators that can be linked to Tele-ICU, peer-reviewed evidence on outcomes of Tele-ICU, and strategic steps to determine what model of tele-icu fits your organization.

    The Value of becoming a Patient Centered Medical Home

    Patient engagement is at the heart of a Patient Centered Medical Home.  The PCMH model focuses on the whole patient with emphasis on accessible services, comprehensive team-based care, quality, and safety resulting in improved outcomes and higher patient satisfaction. 

    The primary care team is essential to providing comprehensive care. By focusing on patient health goals for a healthier lifestyle, preventative care to mitigate risk factors, and coordinated management of chronic disease for longevity and quality of life, this whole patient perspective is the heart of a Patient Centered Medical Home.

    In this session, Kate Hill, VP of Clinic Division at The Compliance Team will discuss PCMH as a value-based strategy that is a very powerful step you can make to align with CMS’ move to a quality vs quantity reimbursement fee structure and how PCMH can provide incentives for better processes and better outcomes.

    Webinar: Reviewing the Recent RHC Reimbursement Changes from CMS

    This webinar will feature Brock Slabach, senior vice president for members services of the National Rural Health Association, who will detail the recent changes to rural health clinic reimbursement as part of the COVID-19 relief package passed by Congress in late December.  This bill included major changes regarding CMS reimbursement amounts for both independent and provider-based rural health clinics, and it is important that RHC administrators and pertinent staff attend to fully understand how these changes will affect them and their practice.  This webinar will also discuss the steps being taken to correct the negative elements of this bill in order to benefit all RHC types.

    Webinar: Rural Hospital Executive Search

    Executive search is a logical option for appropriate representation of C-Suite executives (CEO, CFO, CNO), yet has been traditionally overlooked in rural hospitals. The presentation will offer personal insights and surveys relevant towards the recruitment for open positions as well as the retention of tenured healthcare executives, with emphasis on the alignment of their vital roles and responsibilities to individual career goals. 

    Presentation Goals:

    1. To reflect the challenges of rural healthcare and the opportunities so available.

    2. To reflect the cultural factors that surround recruitment and retention of the rural C-Suite   position. 

    3. To represent the responsibilities of the rural C-Suite executive in compensation models.

    4. To highlight the supportive role of executive search in concept, cultural and coaching factors

    Primary Care provider shortage is not a new phenomenon. Many solutions have been proposed to close the gap and improve access to care for our rural health populations. Improving student access to rural sites during their medical training improves their attitudes about working in rural health and the likelihood that they will return to practice in these locations. This webinar will serve to discuss student learning opportunities and how to implement student learners into a busy clinical setting. In addition, we will discuss the training differences between Physician Assistant (PA) and Nurse Practitioner (NP).
