Vital Clinical Documentation for the CHC Provider
Ongoing webinar series
Clinical documentation is the core of effective and safe patient care. Coding within CHCs continues to be challenging for providers and coders. Our web-based program offers a step-by-step curriculum where participants will learn key components of coding patient history, physical exams and medical decision-making. Using real life clinical examples, participants will see that it’s not the quantity of documentation that matters–it’s the quality.

Building Skills for Effective Teams Cohort IV or Leadership Development Program
Fall 2018 – Fall 2019
Beginning this fall, Colorado Community Health Network (CCHN) and the Center of Nursing Excellence (the Center) will host Cohort IV of BSET training. BSET is a highly-rated training program designed specifically for Community Health Centers (CHCs) It focuses on expanding participants’ leadership expertise, interpersonal knowledge, and emotional intelligence needed to confidently function within their CHC’s integrated care teams and quality improvement efforts. Starting with Cohort IV, BSET training has been modified from previous cohorts to address barriers to participation. One of the challenges voiced by CHCs that hinders participation was the “out-of-clinic” time for providers. 

A new companion program has been created to address this concern – BSET Leadership Development Program (LDP). LDP will include similar BSET content topics via class and web-based sessions that will have a reduced out-of-clinic time. LDP is not replacing the standard BSET training, but rather is designed to be an option for CHC staff that may not otherwise be able to participate. LDP participants can choose to participate in the LDP only. Or, participants can attend LDP as a dedicated provider who will support a BSET team. Click here for more information about the new Leadership Development Program (LDP).

The standard BSET program will continue to run similarly to previous cohorts. BSET teams must include at least two providers from the following professions: primary care physicians, physician assistants, nurse practitioners, dentists, psychiatrists, psychologists, LCSWs, marriage and family therapists, and other licensed behavioral health providers. Providers will choose to register and attend LDP or the full BSET Training. Click here to learn more about BSET, including dates and location.
