Speakers will share the positive impact on clinical and financial outcomes, including a 46% drop in heart failure ED visits and a $250 per member per month (PMPM) savings—a 19% reduction in global costs. ​

Jill Powelson, Dr.PH., M.P.H., M.B.A., R.N., C.P.C., Principal, HPPE Program

As medical groups continue to evolve, it has become more difficult for multispecialty medical groups to find comparable benchmarks or definitive ways to judge if they’re succeeding, existing, or faltering.

AMGA’s High-Performing Physician Enterprise Program provides an opportunity to address this challenge. This webinar will review the seven domains of HPPE, AMGA’s proprietary assessment for multispecialty medical groups. The session will also highlight the HPPE program measures, and the manner in which HPPE assesses medical group performance and provides guidance for organizations to course-correct where needed to achieve resiliency.

Examples include:

  • Financial and Operational alignment in key performance areas
  • Identifying issues related to physician burnout and satisfaction
  • Clinical care indicators for high performance
  • Uncovering strengths and opportunities in Governance and Leadership

What is HPPE?

The High Performing Physician Enterprise program is a comprehensive review of your medical group, with both comparative benchmarking data in key functional areas, and a collaborative structure so that you can share and learn from other high-performing AMGA member participants. HPPE will empower your leadership team by providing insight, clarity, and focus by providing a snapshot assessment of current performance and a roadmap towards future improvement.

Understanding the Latest Payment Cuts and What You Can Do About It
Fred Horton M.H.A., President, AMGA Consulting and Kelsi O'Brien, M.H.S.A, Director, AMGA Consulting

On Friday, December 10, 2021, the President signed into law: S. 610, the “Protecting Medicare and American Farmers from Sequester Cuts Act,” which delays the 2% Medicare sequestration cut until March 31, 2022, and provides a 1% reduction in the Medicare sequester cut from April 1, 2022 to June 30, 2022, in addition to other changes to Medicare payments.

While we avoided the devastating 10% Cut to Medicare Reimbursement, many medical groups and health systems will still need to make sense of the E&M changes implemented in 2021, and look at ways they can re-align their physician compensation arrangements and operational expenses accordingly.

Our team will explore specific financial models and various calculations using real data from AMGA Consulting, and present key areas of focus that can be potential “pitfalls” if not addressed appropriately, as well as strategic approaches towards overall financial resiliency that can have a positive long-lasting impact.

Time-in-Range: An Intuitive CGM Metric to Integrate in Your Clinical Practice
Karen Earle, M.D., Chief of Endocrinology and Director of Diabetes Services, California Pacific Medical Center, and Chief of Division of Medical and Surgical Specialties, Sutter West Bay Medical Group

The use of continuous glucose monitoring (CGM) has created new glucose metrics for both people with diabetes and healthcare professionals to incorporate into diabetes management. While A1C is an average, time-in-range (TIR) captures when glucose is in the target range (70 mg/dL-180 mg/dL for most individuals), as well as when glucose is above range and below range, providing critical information for treatment decisions as well as health behavior changes. Join this webinar to learn about consensus guidelines for TIR measurement and goals, why TIR is an intuitive CCM metric to guide treatment, and key principles when educating diabetes patients about TIR goals.

The Critical Role of Monoclonal Antibodies as the COVID-19 Pandemic Continues
Michael Anderson, M.D., M.B.A., Senior Advisor, Health and Human Services (HHS) Office of the Assistant Secretary for Preparedness and Response in Washington, Keith Boell, DO, Chief Quality Officer, Population Initiatives, Geisinger, and John Kennedy, M.D., President, AMGA Foundation and Chief Medical Officer, AMGA
Monoclonal antibodies will continue to play a significant role in treating high-risk patients with COVID-19 even as vaccination rates rise, given that there will always be a cohort of people who will not be vaccinated. As viral variants arise and spread, it is increasingly critical that providers who care for people at increased risk of developing severe COVID-19 symptoms have the latest treatment information at their fingertips. Dr. Anderson will share monoclonal antibody updates – including new administration routes and novel treatments in the pipeline – and answer providers’ questions about these important COVID-19 therapies.
Additionally, in an interactive conversation between leaders, Dr. Kennedy will lead a discussion with Dr. Boell on the use of monoclonal antibodies as a treatment for COVID-19.  Webinar attendees will learn about how Geisinger designed their treatment program, how they developed treatment protocols and the support needed across the system related the implementation of emerging COVID-19 therapeutics.

Julia Andrieni, M.D., FACP, Senior Vice President, Population Health and Primary Care, President & CEO, Houston Methodist Coordinated Care ACO; and Mahesh Amin, M.D., Medical Director, CV Service Line, BayCare Health System/BayCare Medical Group 


The impact of COVID-19 on healthcare delivery has heightened the need to apply innovative approaches and technology to help evolve patient care. During the pandemic, many patients with chronic conditions defer routine care and may be slow to follow up on new symptoms which may lead to negative patient outcomes. 
  
Learn directly from the Heart Rhythm Society and two advanced healthcare system leaders about the systematic processes they implemented to identify at risk patients, reduce unwanted care variability and ensure guideline-based management, which may improve patient outcomes and system efficiencies.   
The examples provide attendees with an understanding of how gaps in care may be identified and solutions are prioritized, developed, and implemented. Leaders will also share some of the associated challenges encountered when initiating solutions within their health systems. Topics include examples of the identification of patients with moderate-to-high risk of stroke who may not be treated to guidelines, EMR optimization to help identify patients, and examples of appropriate follow up.

Improving Clinical and Economic Outcomes with Nutrition Care: Real World Evidence from US Hospitals and Primary Care Clinics
Kirk Kerr, Ph.D., Senior Manager, Global Health Economics & Outcomes Research, Abbott Nutrition; Suela Sulo, Ph.D., Director, Global Health Economics & Outcomes Research, Abbott Nutrition
Value-based healthcare encourages primary care providers to refocus on the fundamentals of good health, with diet and lifestyle at the forefront. Poor nutrition is a common occurrence in the outpatient setting in patients with chronic conditions as well as those recently discharged from the hospital. Up to 1 in 3 older adults is either at risk of becoming or is already is poorly nourished.
Nutritional interventions, including the use of oral nutritional supplements and/or meal replacements, is a low-cost, low-risk solution clinically proven to improve patient outcomes and reduce healthcare costs, yet is rarely incorporated into patient-centered care to achieve these goals.
This webinar will demonstrate how a large hospital system and a primary care practice adopted a nutrition quality improvement program consisting of early identification of nutrition risk, intervention and education to improve patient outcomes and reduce healthcare costs.
