 quality leadership
It doesn’t matter whether you are in academics, employed by a hospital system or in private practice. The fact is, you lead every day. Others look up to you, and your actions will directly impact their ability to care for patients. We all can improve our leadership skills. We all can learn from a corporate world that has developed “Quality Leadership” that lends itself well to health care practice. Begin by assessing your own leadership and learn the skills that will benefit you practice and your patients.

 Practical tools
No money, no mission. Like it or not, it is the way of the world. The handling of financial matters, no matter the practice setting, is an essential feature to the delivery of high quality, safe and low cost care. Allocating resources, at the right time and place is a key ingredient to improving patient outcomes. This course supplies the key financial skills that every physician needs to empower you to participate in the financial decision making of your organization.

This course concentrates on those government programs that affect your practice, your patients and your reimbursement. MU, PQRS, VBM, ACA, ACO, and PCMH are more than innocent acronyms.  Government has an important role in your practice, no matter the setting, and this relationship will challenge your leadership skill as you navigate through health reform.
