Last week we posted the first-look agenda for our Fall CV Transforum. This week, I thought I'd give you some insights about the sessions we're planning.
We do a number of things to ensure the content at each conference is compelling and relevant for members. We review the conversations from the listservs. We listen closely during the closing session at each conference, during which attendees ask questions and share ideas and challenges. We survey attendees at the end of each conference and our consultants continuously identify current issues while in the field.
So I feel confident that this is the agenda you've asked us for, in one way or another. And if it doesn't inspire you to register, I hope the location will. The Monarch Beach Resort in Dana Point, CA is nothing short of spectacular.
Thursday October 24
Although we're not quite ready to announce speakers and details about the pre-conference sessions, one of them will be focused on patient access, and the other will dig into dyad leadership models with a couple programs sharing their experience. Stay tuned for more information, we will be adding speakers and a detailed description in the next week.
Thursday afternoon will open with these outstanding general sessions:
After the opening sessions we'll introduce our industry partners and give you some time to talk with them and understand their offerings. After that, we'll round out the day with two more general sessions.
Friday October 25
Friday morning is focused around our Pod sessions, after which we'll facilitate case study discussion with some of MedAxiom's industry partners. General sessions begin after lunch.
Following these sessions and a break to visit with industry partners, there will be eight breakout sessions to choose from throughout the afternoon. These are framed as nuts and bolts courses, case studies, or interactive discussions so you get a deeper dive on focused topics and trends. From TVU Model Case studies and How to Use Your NCDR Data, to Addressing Quality Concerns in the Practice and Hospital, there's a lot to choose from. You can review the list of eight sessions in the agenda.
Saturday October 26
We structured the final sessions to end in time for those of you who live in Midwest and East Coast time zones to catch your flights. We hope that boosts the number of you who stay for the breakouts, which end at 11:15am.
There will be two general sessions on Saturday:
Four breakout session options follow, covering value-based compensation models, CV scorecards, transitional care pathway programs, and appropriate staff levels.
Finally, our unstructured, open discussion between MedAxiom consultants and members starts at 10:30am and concludes at 11:15am. Since making this a final session several years ago - when only ten members attended - this discussion has become a favorite closer. About eighty-five of you attended at the spring conference and the conversation was lively. We hope you'll stick around for the dialogue.
All in all, it's a hearty agenda for fall. We'll send updates as details are confirmed. Meanwhile, I hope you'll REGISTER as well as book your room soon, our room block is filling up fast at The Monarch Beach Resort in Dana Point, CA . See you in October!
