Dr. Michael Foutz of Advanced Family Medicine in Kuna shares his "Fixed Minute Visits" innovation, helping him stop playing Tetris with his clinical schedule everday.
Boise family medicine physician Deb Roman, DO shares how the Idaho Physician Well-Being Action Collaborative has started to move the dial on reforming Prior Authorizations.
Since 2019, ACMS has been working to launch an initiative called the Capital Coalition for Physician Well-Being. The goals of that project, outlined on our more generic PhysicianVitality.org website, is to become a trans-local medical community that is broadly committed to prioritizing physician well-being in the process of delivering healthcare. The Coalition promotes the National Charter on Physician Well-Being (NCPW) as a local aspirational standard for the greater SW Idaho medical community and also recognizes our leadership impact within the entire state.
In 2021, our goal is to produce a broadly disseminated newsletter that highlights some of the works-in-progress or already implemented innovations in well-being in healthcare. We are also exploring the possibility of interviewing some of those leaders in our local area promoting changes and do a deeper dive with them into the nuts and bolts of their initiatives. We want to highlight to others the importance of making changes that support well-being, even as the Coronavirus crisis begins to subside
To this end, we are now soliciting for ideas, solutions in progress, or successfully implemented interventions that promote physician well-being from our local area. They could be at any of the commitment levels listed here. Please fill out the form here to submit yours.
