2013 Fall Meeting 

How to Thrive in a Changing Healthcare Environment


Thursday, November 7 2013

5:00 – 9:00 p.m.

Massachusetts Medical Society

860 Winter Street

Waltham, MA


Program Description

Physicians are concerned about how healthcare reform and the affordable care act will impact their practice. This conference will provide participants with expert advice about keeping their practice viable in this changing market. This is a national issue that affects all physicians. Neurologists have been discussing this at the national level and we would like to personalize the information to neurologists from MA. We want to improve the understanding of neurologists who will practice under the affordable care act in accountable health care organizations.


Program Objectives

At the completion of this conference the participants should be able to:

§  Access their current practice for readiness to explore new payment and care delivery contracts

§  Explore techniques for increasing patient engagement

§  Identify gaps and recognize AAN and AMA resources that can help

§  Take control of their (available) data

§  Think critically about how they might operate as a Medical Home Neighbor, or build a winning value-based contract

§  Describe AAN quality measures and identify other available neurology-related measures that can be used to build a quality base
