Free webinar: Novel outpatient COVID treatments

January 18, 2022

Previously, monoclonal antibodies (mAb) have been the primary outpatient treatment for high-risk individuals with COVID-19 to reduce hospitalization and severe illness, in addition to vaccines. Only one monoclonal antibody, sotrovimab, is effective against the omicron variant currently circulating, resulting in a shortage of treatments. Fortunately, there are now new promising antiviral treatments including ritonavir boosted nirmatrelvir (Paxlovid) and molnupiravir. However, providers are unfamiliar with these medications, including how to manage drug-drug interactions with Paxlovid and the process for prescribing these medications, which are in short supply. Participants will increase prescribing these novel medications/treatments. https://ww2.highmarksce.com/micme/index.cfm?do=pln.viewActivity&style=2&preview=true&plannerID=4961

Michigan Medicine Clinical Simulation Center Brown Bag Discussion featuring Vitaliy Popov, Ph.D.

January 13, 2022

In this talk, Dr. Popov will present the Epistemic Network Analysis of an eight-year database of simulation center feedback provided by the American College of Surgeons Accredited Education Institutes. This analysis provides a novel perspective on the evolving field of simulation from an optional to essential modality in healthcare professions education.Since 2005, the American College of Surgeons Accredited Educational Institutes has provided accreditation of surgically-focused simulation centers with the added benefit of identifying best practices defined as “areas far exceeding the accreditation standards or novel methods of advancing high quality, impactful education.” To evaluate the evolution of accreditation feedback and…

Patient Experience Learning Forum: Service Recovery and De-escalation Strategies to Improve the Patient Experience

December 13, 2021

Join us for an engaging session and interprofessional panel conversation about service recovery and its role in high-quality, compassionate care. Participants will receive an introduction to the concept of service recovery, an essential part of providing an excellent patient experience, and learn about de-escalation strategies and behaviors that can be employed when situations become difficult. The didactic component will be followed by an interdisciplinary panel of Michigan Medicine employees sharing their experiences of managing patient and family complaints and escalated behaviors. The target audience is all faculty, staff, and learners at Michigan Medicine.  CONTINUING EDUCATION CREDITS AVAILABLE Michigan Medicine Nursing…

LHS Collaboratory Seminar Series: “The Current State of U.S. Interoperability and Implications for Learning Health Systems”

December 2, 2021

Interoperability is considered a key capability of a high-performing healthcare system and has been a top policy priority for more than a decade. Implementing interoperability is, however, a complex undertaking – requiring stakeholder coordination that tackles incentives, governance, technology, standards, and more. In this talk, Dr. Adler-Milstein will describe current approaches to interoperability and where we stand with respect to current levels of national adoption. She will then discuss the implications for Learning Health System efforts at different levels of scale. Presenter: Julia Adler-Milstein, PhD Professor of Medicine and Director of the Center for Clinical Informatics and Improvement Research (CLIIR)…

The Role of Command Centers in Health System Operations

November 18, 2021

Hospitals nationally have struggled with the challenges of increasing demand and limited overall capacity leading to bottlenecks in care and inefficient patient flow through the hospital.  Given constraints on expanding bed capacity including both high costs and regulatory barriers, hospitals have increasingly focused on improving operational efficiency as a method to improve patient flow.  Michigan Medicine and UM Health have been on a journey to improve patient flow over several years through the application of engineering principles, analytics, improved management of variation, and creation of a system-wide playbook for how we approach capacity management and patient flow in our hospitals.…
