Coming in 2018: Web-Based Primary Care & Population Health Grand Rounds

NYC Health + Hospitals / OneCity Health’s Office of Population Health is launching web-based Primary Care & Population Health Grand Rounds in 2018. Geared towards NYC Health + Hospitals physicians and nurses, as well as OneCity Health primary care partners, these monthly sessions will be broadcast live via WebEx and cover topics ranging from practical strategies to effectively treat obesity to offering buprenorphine treatment to patients.

This is our first forum where we can formally educate primary care providers across all of our sites in our Performing Provider System (PPS) at the same time. Our aim is to provide high quality, practical education with a focus on topics that are integral to primary care, which is an important step in enhancing care across both NYC Health + Hospitals and our PPS.

Attendees to our Grand Rounds will be eligible to earn continuing medical education (CME) and continuing nurse education (CNE) credits. Moreover, for those who cannot attend the presentation live, the sessions will be posted to our Learning Management System (LMS) to view at a later date, with CME and CNE credits available until the following month’s Grand Rounds.

Dr. Dave Chokshi, Chief Population Health Officer, NYC Health + Hospitals/OneCity Health, will lead our initial session, focused on Population Health Management. He will discuss principles and approach to population health, the elements of a population health strategy, and steps needed to achieve it. For details to join the meeting via WebEx, click here to view the session in our Events Calendar.

Below are the dates and initial topics for 2018. All Grand Rounds sessions will take place from 12:30 p.m. – 1:30 p.m. Learning objectives and instructions to join remotely via WebEx will be posted to the OneCity Health Events Calendar as soon as they are available.
