Chair's Message

Primary care transformation is accelerating as practices prepare for the new payment models that go into effect in 2019. The Conference on Practice Improvement provides a forum for sharing “Bright Spots of Primary Care Transformation.” Share your successes and learn from colleagues as we all develop strategies to demonstrate quality of care and cost-effectiveness to payers.  

Are you looking for better outcomes? New ways to help patients manage their health? Strategies for engaging your team in improvement?  Ideas to improve care coordination and save costs?  

The Conference on Practice Improvement is looking for submissions in these areas:

  • Quality and Safety
  • Outcome Measurement
  • Billing and Coding
  • Practice Management
  • Patient Centeredness
  • Leadership
  • Practice-Based Team Care
  • Access to Care and Information
  • Care Coordination
  • Health Information Technology
  • Behavioral Health Integration
  • Population Health
Submissions from both teams and individuals (physicians, behavioral science specialists, nurses, administrators, etc.) are encouraged.

Conference attendees will be able to network with other family physicians and practitioners from residency programs, private practices, and public safety net clinics.

On behalf of my colleagues on the conference steering committee, we look forward to reviewing your submissions.

2016 Conference Chair
