Join us on April 18, 2017 for MPCA's Spring Clinical Conference titled Using Health IT TO Optimize Quality Improvement: Why Valid Data Matters for Population Health Management. The Michigan Primary Care Association will host this annual conference at the Crowne Plaza Hotel in Lansing. The day will be divided into two parts: the morning will feature speakers from HITEQ, a HRSA-partner, who will present on topics of population health management, review of national UDS data and trends, data validation priorities and strategies and exploring the results of data validation that inform strategies for Continuous Quality Improvement (CQI). The afternoon session will feature Ms. Candace Chitty, a nationally-recognized speaker who will build on population health management concepts, and offer advanced reviews on care coordination and care management principles and practices, motivational interviewing, self-management, self-efficacy, and behavior change. This will be an excellent opportunity to network with your peers from across the state at sister Health Centers.


Continuing Education

Application for CME will be filed with the American Academy of Family Physicians. Nurses and Social Workers may also use AAFP CMEs as electives.
