Virtual Boot Camp in Home-Based Primary Care: Essential Elements and Advanced Applications in Home Based Primary Care™
Special Promotion
Since participants often leave the workshops energized and eager to implement what they’ve learned, we are pleased to include in your Virtual Boot Camp enrollment a free post-workshop, one-hour consultation with our experts (limited to one free consultation per practice). You will be invited to bring into this discussion others from your practice to expose them to some of the clinical and operational enhancements introduced at the workshops, and we will propose some preliminary steps to help you achieve your goals.
The Essential Elements in Home-Based Primary Care™ two-day foundational workshop will be presented virtually on November 19 and 20, 2020, and is designed for learners who are considering or who are relatively new to offering home-based primary care (HBPC) services for patients with complex medical conditions. Through this workshop, clinical providers, practice managers and operations staff will enhance their knowledge, competence, and performance in providing optimal HBPC based on current recommendations from national experts. This classroom workshop features case-based sessions focusing on clinical and economic factors unique to home-based primary care, including patient assessment; infection control; medication management; acute/urgent care; technology useful in enhancing patient care and productivity; cultural competence; staffing, operations and durable medical equipment; coding and billing; provider safety and self-care.

The Advanced Applications in Home-Based Primary Care™ two-day classroom workshop will be presented virtually on December 3 and 4, 2020, and is designed for experienced home-based primary care (HBPC) providers and practice staff. Case-based sessions focus on higher-level topics in HBPC such as advance care planning, prognostication, care coordination and transitions of care, caregiver support, and challenging clinical issues such as dementia and polypharmacy.

In addition, this workshop features tips and strategies related to coding and documentation, workflow and staff productivity, and demonstrating the value of HBPC. You will leave this interactive workshop with enhanced knowledge and skills you can immediately and confidently apply in your practice.
Upon completion of the Essential Elements workshop, learners will be able to:
1. Describe the role of HBPC to improve clinical care of medically complex, homebound patients by achieving the "quadruple aim" of better health, better quality, lower costs and joy of practice.

2. Apply the American Geriatric Society's (AGS) Guiding Principles in the approach to the care of people with multi-morbidities in the home setting.

3. Provide optimal patient care in a simulated home setting and demonstrate appropriate coding and documentation for the visit.

4. Examine and discuss the business models, economic drivers, and quality indicators for HBPC and their impact on care delivery.

Upon completion of the Advanced Applications workshop, learners will be able to:
1. Discuss optimal care and management strategies through challenging home-based primary care (HBPC) cases, including patients with dementia, acute/urgent issues in the home?

2. Assess evidence-based practices for medication management, identify potential pitfalls and dangers of polypharmacy, discuss a structured approach for de-prescribing and review strategies for maximizing adherence.

3. Apply optimal practices in coordinating the care of homebound patients during transition, including handoffs, medication reconciliation and collaboration with community agencies.

4. Manage difficult conversations with patients and family around advance care planning, serious illness communication and prognostication.

5. Describe the importance of caregiver support, as well as the screening tools and resources that can be utilized for caregivers.

6. Identify billing opportunities and documentation requirements beyond the normal E/M codes and apply strategies for implementing these services into daily practice.

7. Compare various staffing models for HBPC and examine opportunities for improving workflow and efficiency.
