Real Meaningful Use For Pediatricians – Nov 4, 2011

I’ll be speaking on Nov 4, 2011, from 3:15-4:30 (it’ll be more like 5pm if I do it right), for the GA AAP chapter at their annual Pediatrics On The Parkway event. I know the title of my talks says “Practice Performance Improvement: Simple Steps that Improve Patient Care & Your Bottom Line” but it’s …

SOAPM Party

I’m just going to call it the “SOAPM party.”  We can pretend it’s all formal and official, but the fact is that it’s simply a lot of fun even when the SOAPM executive committee members are dancing on the tables. If you’re going to the NCE, come join us on Saturday night, the info is …

“Practice” Sessions for 2011 NCE

Start your planning for next month now.  Care of Siouxsie, here’s a list of all the “practice” related sessions in Boston.  Highlights, though I’m sure I’ll miss some, are below.  Rumor has it that I might be speaking in one or more of these as a secret weapon:    Scheduled Time and Place  Faculty  Program …

Upcoming Goodies from the AAP’s Department of Publications

This is an unabashed ad for the AAP.  Their marketing isn’t running on all cylinders, so I’m giving them a boost by sharing this list of upcoming publications.  Some of these publications are crucial and I don’t want my clients to missed this them. My goal the rest of this week?  One blog post per …

PCC UC and SOAPM

It doesn’t take much besides a change in title to turn a PCC Users’ Conference into an impromptu SOAPM gathering.  I took some quick shots of well known SOAPM contributors cooling off before heading out to dinner…can you name them all? [click to enlarge] I see Lynn Cramer/Jill Valuch,  Jeanne Marconi (though that one is …

Conspiracy to Defraud Pediatricians

[Note the continued updates at the end] I have avoided blogging for over a week as I tear my hair out dealing with the transition to the 2011 Immunization Administration codes for our clients. I am going to name names below and if anyone representing any of these organizations would like to correct my information, …

2011 Immunization Product Table

Updated 05/07/12 With the help of extra sets of eyes at the Verden Group and the extra-smart people at the AAP, I present to you three versions of the 2011 Immunization Product Table (someone give me a better name). This differs from previous versions I’ve done in a couple ways: Well, duh, it’s updated for …

Delayed NCE Blog

[Most of this blog was originally ‘penned’ live from the NCE, but a conspiracy of time-consuming events – namely, dining out with Friends of PCC – kept me from completing it on time.] I’m seated at our booth (1827 I think), debriefing myself about yesterday’s events. Whew, busy time.  We must have 2x more staff here …

So, Who Is Going to the NCE?

San Francisco, here we come.  If you’re going to the NCE and would like to say hello, I’d be honored! It’s going to be crazy, but that just gives us more opportunities to get together. Stop by our booth (#1827) or the Office of the Future exhibit.  We’ll also be first on the docket at …

“Practice” Sessions at the AAP NCE

If you are like me, you find the AAP’s NCE event overwhelming.  Too many people to see, too many sessions to attend, etc.  A big problem I have is overcoming my ADHD long enough to go through the catalog of events to find the things I should be doing. I don’t know if they’ve done this …
