Identified educational needs:
The practice of medicine in Florida is becoming increasingly complicated in terms of new state/federal regulations (HIPAA, coding, OIG policies, etc.), malpractice and tort issues, and amplified focus on medical errors and physician blame. Since hospitals and specialty societies typically have to focus their CME on clinical pursuits and topics, the FMA feels responsible for offering activities that focus on these general regulatory/legal topics that impact physician practice.
Desired results are:
The sessions should enable physicians to return to their practices armed with information that will assist them with the following:
¨ Implementation of risk management strategies designed to protect physicians and their patients
¨ Prevention of medical errors
¨ Compliance with all elements of informed consent
¨ Compliance with all federal coding requirements and OIG policies
¨ Recognition of common physician stressors and Integration of techniques to avoid total burn-out
¨ Understanding of electronic medical records including benefits and how a paper-based medical practice can assess its need and readiness for such a system
Ultimately, the FMA would like to contact the participants 3-6 months after the CME Cruise to determine if the participants remain satisfied with the efforts of the FMA to keep them informed as to new state & federal regulations that affect their practice and strategies that can assist physician in protecting their patients, their practice, and their license.
