Physician Business Leadership Certificate Program - Session 3
If you have questions, contact Corey Martin at firstname.lastname@example.org or 515-288-1955.
Emerging and aspiring physician leaders.
Providers today are facing an era of change unlike any before. Reform policies shifting requirements and fiscal uncertainty create a chaotic atmosphere for professionals as well as providers. During times like these, strong leaders who demonstrate innovation and focused decision-making abilities are required. Participants in this program will gain the tools to become successful leaders in today’s complex health care environment.
The Physician Business Leadership Certificate is achieved through attending four in-person sessions scheduled quarterly, along with additional requirements in networking and involvement with other industry activities. The content includes three areas of focus:
- Foundational Leadership Skills: fundamental leadership and business skills.
- Equipping for Health Care Today: topics helping physicians improve their execution, efficiency, and effectiveness.
- Hot Topics: issues in health care delivery currently impacting physicians, e.g., the opioid crisis, behavioral health issues.

Welcome and Introductions
Strong Negotiation and Communication Skills: Part of a Leader’s Repertoire for Conflict Management
To be an effective health care leader, one must have a robust repertoire of negotiation and communication skills. Regardless of context, leaders often have formal responsibility for negotiating agreements with other firms or constituencies, they must compete with colleagues for scarce organizational resources and they are often called upon to resolve disputes between colleagues. The purpose of this session is to facilitate the basic understanding of the theories and processes of negotiation and conflict management as they are practiced in a variety of settings. The 90-minute seminar is designed to be relevant to the broad spectrum of negotiation and conflict management problems faced by health care leaders.
Quality, Patient Safety and Diagnostic Errors
Diagnostic errors are a common but relatively ignored cause of patient harm and are the most common cause of malpractice suits. Other kinds of medical errors are easier to talk about because they can be blamed on system problems rather than individual physicians. In hindsight, it is easy to blame faulty thinking by individual physicians and to find biases and failed heuristics that led to the error, but the most common cause of diagnostic errors is the physician’s failure to consider the correct diagnosis as a possibility. One potential solution to preventing these errors involves a “cognitive forcing strategy” in which physicians review a differential diagnostic checklist and force themselves to consider all reasonable causes of the patient’s presenting symptom. This presentation will describe our experience with diagnostic checklists in primary care.
Public Health Today
This session will provide an update on current and future public health issues in Iowa and include an example of public health working with physicians in the health care community to lead an effective response effort.
An Overview of Current and Emerging Payment Models in Health Care
This presentation will provide an overview of the driving forces and market factors influencing the successes and challenges providers are facing in the industry’s movement toward a value-based health care system. The session will include an overview of alternative payment models and programs including the quality payment program, CPC plus program, bundled payments and Accountable Care Organizations. In addition, as the health care system continues to evolve, providers are developing tools and strategies for developing models that support consumerism in health care. This presentation will provide an update on efforts towards price transparency and payment models that incorporate addressing social determinants of health and fostering better patient engagement.
