Vital Clinical Documentation for the CHC Provider
CCHN
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.

Institutional Strategies for Promoting Resilience and Reducing Burnout
CCHN & CHAMPS
Webinar, August 21, 2017, 12:00-1:30 p.m. MT 
National surveys of US physicians indicate a burnout rate of over 50%. Burnout, a syndrome of emotional exhaustion, cynicism, and low self-efficacy, is associated with medical errors, lower quality of care, lower rates of patient satisfaction, less adherent patients, and impaired professionalism. Individual physicians may engage in strategies to prevent and reduce burnout or improve personal resiliency, but institutions also play a key role in identifying and implementing strategies to improve physician well-being. This webinar will review the evidence-based organizational approaches to reduce physician burnout.

Click here for additional program details and application instructions.

CCHN was awarded a Primary Care Leadership grant from the Colorado Health Foundation  to develop a program focused on developing a cohort of effective CHC clinician champions who will successfully advocate within their organizations, communities and/or state for health care policies that support comprehensive, person-centered care. This hands-on learning opportunity will help clinicians discover how to advance the health of their communities through the power of advocacy and leadership. The training will have a rural focus and is open to all CHCs. We will kick off the program November 3, 2017.

The Health Care Advocate Training Program (HCA), a one-of-a-kind program, blends leadership development and advocacy training in an experiential learning environment. Participants will be provided with a set of defined leadership and advocacy skills as well as needed health care policy information and context that will allow them to become impactful advocates for change. Participants will also have opportunities to network with and learn from local, state, and national health care experts along with legislators working for our communities.

All but one in-person sessions will be held in La Junta, CO. There will be one in-person training in February 2018 held in Denver, CO.

CHC executives will nominate clinicians employed at CHCs with preference given to those who work at rural locations from the following disciplines:
• Physicians
• Physician Assistants
• Nurse Practitioners
• Registered Nurses
• Licensed Behavioral Health Providers
• Dentists
• Dental Hygienists

Interested CHC clinicians will need support from executive leadership (CMO, CDO, Clinic Director, HR Director, CEO, etc.). CHC executives can also nominate CHC clinicians who are passionate about the CHC model of care and have a desire to hone their leadership and advocacy skills. The goal of the program is to bring the highly respected voice of the health care provider to the table to help inform and influence health care policy impacting Coloradans.

Cost: $300

Contact Kim Moyer at kmoyer@cchn.org if you have questions.

This training was made possible through grant funds awarded by the Colorado Health Foundation.
