There are still a few spots left to attend the California Medical Association's Institute for Medical Quality (IMQ) 2015 Medical Staff Conference on October 29 in Los Angeles. The one-day event will provide physicians with the information, solutions and best practices that they need to successfully lead their medical staffs. The conference will tackle some of the difficult decisions facing medical staffs, such as granting privileges for aging physicians and those reentering practice after an absence. Through examples and discussion, the faculty will demonstrate how, by maintaining a focus on quality and safe patient care, they can best position the medical staff to:
- Collaborate with administrators and the governing body on strategic initiatives
- Effectively implement and use electronic health records
- Modernize quality improvement and peer review systems.
The conference also will provide an update on Joint Commission standards and discuss those standards that are most often found noncompliant. It will include an update from Ashby Wolfe, M.D., the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services' Region IX chief medical officer, on initiatives related to patient safety, quality reporting and electronic medical record usage.
The conference has been approved for 6.75 AMA PRA Category 1 creditTM , 6.75 BRN CE credit as well as 6.5 hours of NAMSS credit.
