High Performance Teams: A Critical Need to Restore Joy - Team based care is here to stay. Assuring high quality patient care outcomes requires that teams possess both the commitment and the ability to perform at their highest potential. All teams have leaders, both formal and informal. These individuals have a profound impact on the team's morale and welfare. Healthcare is at a critical junction that requires focus on this group of leaders. It requires a steadfast pursuit of engagement and restoring joy to the workforce.

Join nationally recognized Maysel Kemp White, PhD, MFT, FAACH, Co-Author of the DocCom module on teams and president/CEO of Healthcare Quality and Communication Improvement, discuss this important topic. CLICK HERE to view the PowerPoint slides from this webinar!

You, Me and the Computer Makes Three: How to Integrate the Computer in the Exam Room for Optimal Patient Experience - What Learners Should Know - 
The advent of electronic health records (EHR), coupled with nearly $30 billion in government stimulus to encourage EHR implementation, has prompted a 78 percent adoption rate of EHR and a rapidly increasing number of wired examination rooms, posing a conundrum for clinicians and patients, both of whom are interacting with a “third presence” in the room. Integrating computers in the exam room, while maintaining patient-centeredness, is a challenge at one end of the spectrum and a disaster at the other end.

Emerging from this technological intrusion are effective practices that light the way for clinicians to optimally incorporate computers in routine patient visits. We'll discuss strategies to cope with this healthcare technology challenge in ways that enhance - rather than inhibit - their relationships with patients.
