The Georgia Academy of Family Physicians will offer a THRIVE coding and reimbursement bootcamp during its Annual Family Medicine Weekend in Atlanta on November 10-11. GAFP’s THRIVE bootcamps are intensive and innovative CME-approved practice transformation projects that focus on helping family medicine practices increase reimbursement and improve the health of their patients by identifying under-used codes and procedures.
The bootcamp qualifies as an American Board of Family Medicine (ABFM) Performance Improvement Activity, which means participants can earn up to 20 points towards their 50-point activity requirement.
Participants will attend half-day workshops on performance improvement and coding and documentation on November 10 and 11. They will also complete a rapid cycle improvement project. The sessions will be led by practice transformation experts Stephen Mayfield, DHA, MBA, MBB, and Bob Addleton, EdD, and longtime GAFP partner and coding expert Steve Adams. Together, a Master Black Belt and a master coder will guide participants through a change process that will enhance their practice’s efficiency, improve health outcomes, and increase practice revenue.
Once a participant completes and is accepted into the bootcamp in November, GAFP will reimburse their practice for up to $1,050 to offset travel and registration costs.
Interested practices must complete a brief application by the end of the day on October 12. Applicants will be notified of the results of their application no later than October 20.
