Alumni Weekend Clinic Day 2014
Obesity is epidemic in the United States. No single approach has been proven effective in managing this problem. Evidence-based and best practice guidelines may help physicians to prevent and manage obesity. Motivational interviewing can guide patients to lifestyle changes. Population health management, healthcare system redesign, and public policies also may help to address the epidemic.
Health care Reform is poised to fundamentally change how medicine is practiced. Understanding reform is critical for professionals in the field so as to manage both their patients and their careers.
Affordable Care Act will impact on payments to physicians and hospitals in many ways. Historically, both physicians and hospitals have been paid based upon volume. As payment reform takes hold, providers and hospitals will be paid based upon “value”, defined as quality + access/cost. One new method of value payment is the bundled payment. This is being seen with greater frequency, especially in surgical commodity practices such as orthopedics.
