Quality Improvement Summit
April 7, 2018
Hilton Columbus at Easton
Participants will gain insight into diabetes prevention and management, learn the benefits of a team-based approach to care, and understand the importance of setting an office protocol that supports practice improvement. An expert speaker will cover topics such as the importance of quality improvement (QI) and its impact on enhanced patient care, showcase key points of the prevention and management of diabetes, and illustrate how streamlining office procedures can make a positive impact on health outcomes as well as an improved work environment.
In addition, the selected practices are using the Ohio Academy of Family Physicians’ prevention and management of diabetes QI module that has been approved by the American Board of Family Medicine (ABFM) as an alternative Family Medicine Certification Performance Improvement (PI) activity for 20 PI points and by the American Academy of Family Physicians for 20 continuing medical education (CME) credits.
Selected Practices Must
- Identify up to four members of the care team to attend the Summit on Saturday, April 7, at the Hilton Columbus at Easton in Columbus. Attendance by a physician or team champion is required.
- Utilize the diabetes module to enter chart data, select a pathway of intervention (prevention or management of diabetes), and re-enter data after five months of protocol intervention. View a video tutorial on how to use the module.
Participating Practices Receive
- Complimentary registration and mileage reimbursement for up to four members of the care team to attend the Summit.
- Free CME credits for all on-site participants. Application for CME credit will be filed with the AAFP. We anticipate approximately 5 credits to be awarded. These credits are recognized by most national organizations.
- $250 practice stipend for completion of the module after five months of implementation.
- ABFM Family Medicine Certification credit and AAFP Performance Improvement in Practice credits upon completion of the diabetes module.
This live activity has been reviewed and is acceptable for up to 5 Prescribed CME credits by the AAFP. AAFP Prescribed credit is accepted by the American Medical Association (AMA) as equivalent to the AMA Physicians Recognition Award Category 1 credit
