Saturday, March 2, 2019
7:00 AM - 8:00 AM

Sponsored by: 

Now that BPCI Advanced has been implemented, we’re shifting attention to how clinicians can successfully drive change while keeping the patient’s best interests at the center of all decisions.  In this session, Cheri Bankston and Karen Chambers will define BPCI Advanced, discuss what the future of the program holds, how clinicians can prepare for organizational changes like care redesign, and what’s required for providers across the continuum to succeed in the model. The success of BPCI Advanced depends on collaboration, communication, and a strategic mindset, and this session will give clinicians a roadmap to drive their organizations and patients to optimal outcomes.

Learning Outcomes:

  • Define BPCI Advanced, describe how it's changing healthcare delivery, and evaluate how it will impact your practice in delivering value-based care
  • Employ strategies for collaboration between acute care, post-acute care, home health, and community resource leaders to create a cohesive continuum of care and creation of preferred provider networks
  • Identify how to drive change in BPCI Advanced, and illustrate strategies to prepare for and avoid common pitfalls like communication barriers
  • Apply strategies to be an exemplary clinician within BPCI Advanced; communication, collaboration, critical thinking, embracing change, and working toward common patient goals
