The Georgia Academy of Family Physicians is launching a new, innovative, CME-approved practice transformation project that focuses on helping family medicine practices increase reimbursements by identifying under-used codes and procedures, and counts as an American Board of Family Medicine (ABFM) Self-Directed Performance Improvement Activity where you earn up to 20 points towards your overall 50-point activity requirement.
Participants will attend two half-day workshops Friday, June 17 and Saturday, June 18 on Coding and Documentation and complete a rapid cycle improvement project related to workshop material. The sessions will be led by practice transformation experts from Leadership in Practice and longtime GAFP partner and coding expert Steve Adams.
Thrive Bootcamp faculty will contact you in late July/August to discuss your project, celebrate your improvements and help you work through your challenges. The practices will be a part of a mainstage lecture at our Fall CME Annual Meeting (Friday, November 11) to give your “lessons learned” and best practices to the broader audience of Georgia Academy members.
Registration: The registration fee for this pilot project is $500 per practice which includes registration to the Summer CME meeting. Your fee will be reimbursed to you at the completion of the 3-month Thrive Project IF your practice team attends BOTH workshop days and the interim-consultative conference calls with the Thrive Team and at least one of the team members participates in the “Lessons Learned” lecture during the Annual CME Meeting.
Travel Stipend: To offset the cost of bringing additional staff members to the Thrive Bootcamp (held in conjunction with our Summer CME Meeting in Destin), each approved practice will receive a travel stipend of up to $1,500 to attend the June meeting. Each practice team must consist of (at least) one physician and a staff member with billing/coding responsibilities. We will accept up to three (maximum) participants from each practice. All family physicians in approved practices must be active AAFP/GAFP members.
This project is limited to six approved practices. Final confirmation and registration information will be sent to accepted practice participants.
