Risk Management Education

Live Lectures (CME/CNE)

LAMMICO developed various live lecture topics in order to assist you with reducing risk exposure by providing education on current important medical topics. We present live Continuing Medical Education (CME), Continuing Nursing Education (CNE), Office Staff Education, and Hospital Staff Education lectures across Louisiana and Arkansas throughout the year. We also offer interactive seminars on malpractice litigation. All of these activities offer Risk Management Premium Discount Credit, or RM Credit, that may be used to reduce the basic limits portion of your LAMMICO insurance premium by 10 percent every year.

Description: In January of 2016 the CMS Administrator Mr. Andy Slavitt announced a sweeping change to the Medicare Incentive Payment Program and Meaningful Use (MU). The changes are to involve legislation recently passed, e.g. the “Medicare Access & CHIP Reauthorization Act of 2015 (MACRA)”. This Act provided for two new methods of physician Medicare payment. Those were a “Merit-Based Incentive Payment System (MIPS)” and “Alternative Payment Models (APMs)” as part of a “Quality Payment Program”. MU was involved in the former MIPS, i.e. the MIPS combines parts of the past Physician Quality Reporting System (PQRS), the past Value-based Payment Modifier system, and the past Medicare Electronic Health Record (EHR) incentive program. There will now be one single program under which physicians as “Eligible Clinicians (ECs)” will be measured. The areas of measurement will include Quality, Cost & Use of resources, Advancing Care Information (similar to current MU), and of great importance Clinical Practice Improvement. Under these changes physicians as Eligible Professionals (EP) will see positive or negative reimbursement adjustments under MIPS starting in 2019, based on their 2017 performance. The 2017 lecture series will explain the origin of these changes, the application to every physician accepting federal Medicare payment, and will describe individually the areas MIPS and APMs.

Description: This is an interactive activity offered to LAMMICO physicians, mid-level providers and their spouses who are the target of malpractice litigation. This activity provides an overview of the litigation process and an appreciation of the toll it takes on health care providers and their families; to promote an open dialogue between the participants about the effects of litigation; and to enable participants to share ways of coping with the stress of litigation. 
The activity includes a dinner followed by a short film entitled, “Malpractice Litigation: Managing the Stress,” followed by a discussion among the participants, facilitated by Dr. White and Dr. Rigamer.
