Getting to Authentic and Sustained Physician Engagement
Engaging physicians is essential for improving clinical outcomes and approaches to care. How can you best engage physicians, whether or not they are employed by your organization? Our speaker, Dr. Glenn Focht, has extensive experience in this area. In this Webinar, he shares how to establish the foundations of physician engagement and innovative approaches to managing this critically important initiative.
Dr. Glenn Focht is Chief Medical Officer of the Pediatric Physician’s Organization of Children’s Hospital in Boston (PPOC) and leads the management of the at-risk populations of patients through development of population health, quality improvement, total medical expense management, data management, and new program development. The significant, dynamic gains in improved outcomes have been shared nationally in such environments as The Institute for Healthcare Improvement’s (IHI) Annual National Forum on Quality Improvement in Health Care and American Society for Healthcare Risk Management Annual Conference.
Working in close concert with Children’s Hospital Integrated Care Organization (CHICO) and the Program for Patient Safety and Quality (PPSQ) at Boston Children’s Hospital, Glenn has secured multi-million dollar grants to re-engineer care delivery, developing innovative ways of improving care while reducing costs in patient safety and behavioral health. Substantial improvement continues across the PPOC’s large primary care network in multiple population health metrics involving quadruple aim outcomes. These learning communities realize 98% participation by member practices across all populations of clinical, administrative and IT staffing, leading to a shared medical home methodology to improving the lives of over hundreds of thousands of children and their families in eastern Massachusetts.
Prior to his work for the PPOC, Glenn served as President and Physician Executive of Central Maine Medical Group, a 350+ Provider Group with thirty-seven specialties in nineteen communities and gross revenues exceeding $100 million annually, as well as serving as the Senior Vice President of Medical Affairs at Cooley Dickinson Hospital (MA), where he was active in bringing new program development and system-wide performance improvement activities.
