Webinar | Top 10 Risk Management Strategies for Physician Practices, a Look Through the ERM Lens

March 20, 2019 11:00 am - 12:00 pm

Transformative changes in healthcare delivery and management, including the acquisition of physician group medical practices by hospitals and health systems, have created new risks for the industry. Traditional healthcare risk management focused on exposures within hospitals, and more specifically at the bedside. The recent changes in healthcare have shifted that focus toward a healthcare enterprise risk management (ERM) approach that addresses the emerging risks associated with the evolution of our healthcare system.  As a result of these changes, risk managers and healthcare executives alike are urged to look through a new lens to develop enterprise-wide and integrated risk management programs for physicians and groups. This approach must focus on the point-of-care as well as the complex interactions of the entire system to ensure the safety of the patient.

Depending on the structure of the practice (private group practice or newly-acquired group), risk managers and practice managers will face unique challenges in managing uncertainty and risks. Having an effective risk management program can mitigate exposures across all enterprise-wide domains of risk. This will help to create an environment that not only supports the mission of the organization but financially supports the success of the modern healthcare business model.

Learning Objectives:

  • Describe the essential elements of an effective risk management program and plan for the physician practice setting.
  • Apply knowledge of ERM domains to the physician practice setting.
  • Recognize how a robust risk management program can bring value to either the independent group practice or the integrated health system that includes physician practices.

The webinar will be by presented by RCM&D Risk Consultants Denise Shope and Nancy Connelly.

The webinar has been approved for 1.0 contact hour of Continuing Education Credit toward fulfillment of the requirements of ASHRM designations of FASHRM (Fellow) and DFASHRM (Distinguished Fellow) and towards CPHRM renewal.
