We will be joined by special guest speaker:

and what we can do about it as pediatricians.

In addition to hearing from Dr. Wilson, this event is a terrific opportunity to:

  • connect with fellow pediatricians
  • meet AAP leaders – hear about their careers in pediatrics, how they got involved with the AAP, and how being a part of the AAP has enriched their lives
  • learn about your local AAP Chapter and how you can get involved – advocacy, grant funding, committees, educational programs, etc.
  • share your thoughts, comments and concerns with the leadership

IS THERE A FEE?

There is a $10 refundable deposit for Chapter members which will be refunded to you after you attend the event.  The fee for non members is $25 (which can be applied to membership dues if you decide to join).

  • What challenges did they encounter? Which were easy to overcome? Are they still facing challenges in their practice after certification?
  • Did NYS PCMH make their pediatric practice more efficient? What are some positives? Some continuing problems?
  • Did NYS PCMH increase their ability to negotiate for higher rates from MCO’s?
  • Does the practice now have Value Based Payment Contracts?
  • Specific issues they want to share with other practices considering NYS PCMH
New York Pediatricians from four different practices of different sizes from different parts of the state will share their experiences, the good the bad and the ugly and the beautiful.
There will be ample time to ask your questions about NYS PCMH, and how moving toward certification may work for you and your practice.
