Pre-conference Immersion Session 102
The Patient Experience: A Critical Element in the Delivery of High-quality Care
Improving the patient experience is no longer just the right thing to do—it is now a key strategy that health care organizations must adopt to improve outcomes, engage patients in the management of their care, maintain market share, and prepare for the future when financial rewards and penalties will depend on your performance. In this workshop, you will gain insight into the new imperatives for improving the patient experience as well as strategies to support the implementation of communication improvement efforts. The Studer Group, nationally known for helping healthcare organizations establish, accelerate, and hardwire the necessary changes to create a culture of excellence, will address the underlying reasons to improve the patient experience, including the new CMS requirements for group CAHPS reporting. The American Academy on Communication in Healthcare (AACH), a non-profit whose mission is to improve healthcare communication for physician and healthcare teams, will lead an exploration of communication skills by combining brief, didactic presentation segments with the use of media and audience participation. The workshop will conclude with a panel of three AMGA medical group leaders, who will share how their organizations have measurably improved the patient experience at their organizations.
Upon completion of this activity, participants should be able to evaluate the patient experience at their organizations, make recommendations for improvement, and design a strategy to improve patient engagement.

Trends in Physician Governance: Taking Your Board to the Next Level
Running a healthcare organization requires a team and it is imperative that all members of the team—front-line physician leaders to board members—understand the role of governance and what constitutes effective governance within their organization. In this workshop, leaders from some of AMGA’s most preeminent medical groups will present best practice case studies and discuss the up-and-coming trends in physician organization governance and leadership.
Upon completion of this activity, participants should be able to evaluate governance models, identify challenges with restructuring governance within an organization, describe effective governance systems for various settings, and describe evolving governance strategies.

Pre-conference Immersion Session 104
Workshop: Compensation Techniques Used to Improve Provider Performance and Alignment
Successful transformation from fee-for-service to value-based/risk payment arrangements requires a shift in physician compensation structures, no matter the ownership status of your organization. This workshop will bring together four case studies from Advocate Medical Group, Aurora Medical Group, Inc., Crystal Run Healthcare, and Dartmouth-Hitchcock Clinic. Each has a progressive compensation plan that is charting the path toward value-based payment. This workshop will explore select innovative approaches for designing a provider compensation plan; different approaches for aligning compensation to support the culture change needed to move from volume- to value-based plans; cutting-edge compensation models and when to implement those models; and models for compensating physicians for non-productivity activities.
Upon completion of this activity, participants should be able to describe different models of compensation and the process various groups have taken to move from volume-based to value-based compensation arrangements, including implementation and alignment strategies.
