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; and
- Hot Topics: issues in health care delivery currently impacting physicians, e.g., the opioid crisis, behavioral health issues.
Providers are taught early on in medical school to have driven outcomes based on their abilities. Their focus is medical training and not team development or business acumen. This program identifies that providers need to have opportunities to learn about team structures, business acumen, administrative responsibilities and current health care landscapes if they are to be successful providers.

Creating Margin: How to Survive in a Fee For Service-Based World While Transitioning to Value-Based Health Care
Our health care environment is constantly changing and evolving, often with competing priorities. Practices and their leaders are challenged by changing reimbursement models and limited resources to adapt. Developing and refining ways to improve practice fee for service revenue streams can help ease the burden during the transition to value-based payment (VBP). The value proposition for health care requires physicians and practices to more deeply understand and address bot quality and cost. Learning how to effectively incorporate quality improvement methodology into daily practice is an essential skill we will explore. To succeed in VBP, leaders must also connect those quality efforts to addressing the cost of healthcare is essential in VBP. We will also explore how risk adjustment affects payment in VBP, and the current alternative payment models available to participate in VBP.
