John Russell, M.D., Department Chair Family Medicine, Jefferson Health 

While many of us are aware of the impact of the influenza disease, its burden on older adults (especially those living with chronic-health conditions), and its impact on racial-and-ethnic minority groups; the challenge of turning a vaccine into a vaccination remains a challenge.  Dr. John Russell will discuss how health systems and health-care providers can effectively engage in influenza vaccinations efforts by making strong immunization recommendations and responding to patient concerns.

Targeted Tech, Magnified Effect: Leveraging Digital and Technology Optimizations to Increase Cancer Screening Rates

Wednesday, October 26, 2022  |  12:00 p.m. (ET)
Cybele Pacheco, M.D., M.B.A., FAAFP, Director, Senior Focused Care, Geisinger Health System

Durado D. Brooks, M.D., M.P.H., Deputy Chief Medical Officer, Screening, Exact Sciences 

Early cancer detection is a key component of health systems’ prevention capabilities and population health initiatives. With many competing priorities, it’s critical to take the friction out of screening to get as many patients screened as possible. Across the country, health systems of all sizes and scopes are taking advantage of digital capabilities and health information technology optimizations to increase screening rates, improve patient experience, reduce provider burnout and meet quality metrics. Join this session to learn directly from health system leaders who will outline opportunities and key success factors on how to target tech-based solutions for a magnified effect on improving CRC screening rates.


Continuous Glucose Monitors to Improve A1c Control in Primary Care Patients

Wednesday, December 14, 2022  |  12:00 p.m. (ET)
Elizabeth Ciemins, Ph.D., M.P.H., M.A., Vice President, Research and Analytics, AMGA
Stephen Shields, M.P.H., Lead Population Health Research Analyst, AMGA
Amy Woodfin, Medical Office Assistant, Piedmont HealthCare

Partially as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, patients have demonstrated increasing interest in addressing health care issues from their homes, through telehealth visits with their doctors, or home-based screening, testing, or monitoring devices. Continuous glucose monitors (CGMs) help patients self-manage their diabetes from home. This presentation will address a professional practice gap in knowledge about the broader use of CGMs in primary care patients with type 2 diabetes, addressing patient preference for home-based self-management technology, as well as a broader application of CGMs, i.e., prior to insulin therapy initiation.

Upon completion of this session, participants will have a better understanding of the benefits of using CGMs in patients with type 2 diabetes prior to initiation of insulin therapy, how CGM use can be expanded in primary care, including details on workflow and implementation processes, and the patient experience of using a device that empowers diabetes self-management from home.
