WORKSHOP DESCRIPTIONS

1A - Lean Healthcare: First Steps to Patient-Valued Improvements

Are you tired of seeing ingrained routines around the hospital, healthcare facility or practice that could be so much better for patients and staff if only reconfigured and/or streamlined? Lean Six Sigma is a proven methodology that has moved from manufacturing into the healthcare industry…and it’s not going away, especially with the national imperative to improve health and reduce costs.

Through this session, participants will be able to:

  • understand the basic concepts of continuous improvement through a comprehensive overview of Lean Six Sigma;
  • discuss the five pillars of Lean as well as the Six Sigma DMAIC (Define Measure, Analyze, Improve, and Control) methodology as the roadmap for problem solving and process improvement in healthcare;
  • evaluate their own organization and determine the value-added steps that are important to their customers; and
  • uncover the waste and variation inherent in every process and apply the steps necessary to remove it.

Target audience:  Hospital administrators; practice administrators; quality improvement managers; physicians; nurse practitioners; practice managers; clinical leadership

1B - Stage 2 Meaningful Use for Physicians: Meeting the Challenge

If you are a physician or practice manager who is having trouble figuring out the nuances of Meaningful Use Stage 2 or wanting to learn how to make the most of it to improve your practice, this session will help you develop an action plan and timeline to successfully attest. Newly released Stage 2 requirements mean additional planning along with EHR software upgrades, operational process change, and thinking outside of the EHR “box.” Purdue Healthcare Advisors’ Meaningful Use experts have helped thousands of providers achieve MU Stages, and we can help you, too.

Through this session, participants will be able to:

  • recognize the nuances of the Stage 2 Meaningful Use objectives and how they relate to your practice;
  • identify gaps your practice currently has for achieving Stage 2 Meaningful Use; and
  • develop an action plan and timeline to efficiently address identified gaps to expedite achievement of Stage 2 Meaningful Use and successfully attest.

Target audience:  Physicians; nurse practitioners; practice managers; practice administrators; office staff

2A - High-Consequence Care: Making Healthcare Safe and Reliable*

As a healthcare professional, you work in a “high-consequence industry” where failure or accident can be catastrophic for patients and their entire family. A critical component in moving the United States’ aviation industry to one of the safest and most reliable in the world is Lean Six Sigma, an improvement philosophy and methodology used in many other high-consequence industries. Purdue Healthcare Advisors combines a nationally recognized expertise in engineering with Lean Six Sigma methodologies to create a program specifically for high-consequence healthcare.

Through this session, participants will be able to:

  • Recognize how healthcare is one of the leading “high consequence industries” and the resulting opportunities and challenges;
  • Understand how the Lean/Six Sigma methodology can be applied to enhance efficiencies in redesigning workflows by improving reliability, clinical and operational outcomes;
  • apply fundamentals to a high-consequence target area identified by your organization (or a hypothetical scenario); and
  • develop a basic project plan for an improvement initiative focused on a high-consequence target area.

*This application-based program is perfect for teams since it allows the opportunity for the development of an outline for a Lean Quality Transformation while receiving coaching from topic experts.

Target audience:  Hospital administrators; practice administrators; quality improvement managers; physicians; nurse practitioners; practice managers; clinical leadership

2B - The Engaged Patient is Here: Are You Ready?

Meaningful Use and Healthcare Reform laws encourage patients to “engage” as partners with their healthcare provider in order to manage their health and wellness needs. Is your practice ready to embrace this patient? How will you communicate with them ― the Internet, smart phones, tablets and/or computers? What information will you provide and can you do that securely?
Through this session, participants will be able to:

  • recognize the regulations and standards in place regarding patient engagement;
  • increase awareness of the patient engagement tools; apps and devices in the marketplace;
  • discuss the challenges of patient engagement and identify potential means of mitigating those barriers; and
  • develop a strategy for meeting the needs of the “engaged” patient that is Meaningful Use compliant.

Target audience:  Hospital administrators; practice administrators; MU team (ambulatory); MU Team (inpatient); physicians; nurse practitioners; practice managers; IT staff; clinical leadership

3A - Stage 2 Meaningful Use for Hospitals: The Bar Has Been Raised

Your hospital or health system has successfully achieved Stage 1 Meaningful Use, but now is not the time to rest. Stage 2 is right around the corner and requires additional planning along with EHR software upgrades. In this session, we will help you develop an action plan and timeline to efficiently address identified barriers to Stage 2 Meaningful Use attestation. Purdue Healthcare Advisors’ Meaningful Use experts have helped more than 1,000 providers at 40+ hospitals achieve MU Stages, and we can help you, too.

Through this session, participants will be able to:

  • recognize the nuances of the Stage 2 Meaningful Use objectives and how they relate to your hospital;
  • identify gaps your hospital currently has for achieving Stage 2 Meaningful Use; and
  • develop an action plan and timeline to efficiently address identified gaps to expedite achievement of Stage 2 Meaningful Use and successfully attest.

Target audience:  Hospital administrators; MU Team; IS staff; clinical leadership; EHR trainers and support staff
 

3B - Beyond Survival: Practices Thriving Under Payment Reform

Is your clinical practice struggling to grow – or even survive – in the face of healthcare reform? You’re practice will need to leverage the capabilities of health IT to 1) provide and capture meaningful outcomes  and 2) expand access for patients. Combining Purdue Healthcare Advisors’ nationally recognized expertise in Lean Healthcare with our in-depth knowledge of Healthcare Informatics, we facilitate innovative thought solutions aimed at achieving true transformation.
Through this course, participants will be able to supercharge a healthcare practice by:

  • learn the 5 essential highs of a practice that is considered “high performing;”
  • recognize how leveraging the capabilities of health information technology can improve efficiencies within the practice;
  • identify techniques for reducing waste within current office workflows; and
  • assess your practices’ current level of performance in order to develop a plan for optimal performance.

Target audience:  Practice administrators; physicians; nurse practitioners; practice managers; office staff

4A -  Meeting ACO Demands: Follow the Factor Path™

Achieving PCMH recognition through the National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA) requires careful selection and implementation of certain essential factors to increase the likelihood of achieving a transformation that embodies the spirit of the medical home concept. Utilizing our Factor Path™ tool, which couples Lean principles with the NCQA PCMH factors, your practice(s) can pioneer the way toward true patient centered medicine.

Through this session, participants will be able to:

  • understand the Patient Centered Medical Home factors associated with NCQA recognition;
  • learn how implementing certain factors will capture the essence of the medical home concept; and
  • assemble a timeline for successful completion of the factors to expedite NCQA recognition.

Target audience:  Practice administrators; physicians; nurse practitioners; practice managers; office staff; PCMH staff; care managers; quality staff; clinical leadership

4B - Mobile Technology: Do's and Don’ts for Today's Health Professional

Do your kids ever get off their tablets or smartphones? Do you? Until they become embedded into our brains and fully secure, it’s important to learn how your mobile devices can be compromised. Don’t wait until you’ve inadvertently leaked electronic personal health information (ePHI) and violated HIPAA rules. Non-IT professionals will be instructed by an experienced trainer who is able to translate the techno-speak into information that is both highly informative and fun.

Through this session, participants will be able to:

  • recognize standards associated with the secure transfer of ePHI;
  • identify potential gaps in existing mobile technology security by performing a brief onsite assessment of technology; and
  • ensure you and your workforce are HIPAA compliant while using mobile technology.

Target audience:  Hospital administrators; practice administrators; physicians; nurse practitioners; practice managers; all healthcare workers
