Session 1: E-Consults – Extending the Reach of Specialty Care in the Community in a Respectful, Collaborative and Additive Way
Stanford Medicine was able to extend its reach in a respectful, collaborative and additive way with existing community physicians and caregiver organizations. Through a partnership with AristaMD, Stanford Medicine has dramatically reduced wait times, improved access to sub-specialties, and created a path to faster resolution of clinical outcomes. By preserving the patient-physician relationship and instead empowering the community physician to do more for their patients. For Stanford faculty, reducing barriers to patients and thereby enriching their practice with a more diverse set of clinical cases has proven to be valuable.
Session 2: Afib – Tips and Tricks for the PCP
This session will be an end-to-end review of Afib diagnosis and management for the PCP. We will start by discussing the current data for Afib screening and navigating different types of ECG monitoring devices (how to improve your “door to diagnosis” time). After that, we will talk about how to approach initial steps in management, including rate versus rhythm control (including 2022 updates) and anticoagulation. We will end with how to tackle the risk of bleed versus stroke and the reality of bleeding risk and falls. By the end of the session, you should feel comfortable with ECG monitoring and taking the initial steps in management, including anticoagulation and rate versus rhythm control.

Session 5: Managing through difficult times – Incorporating new data and tools to make your job easier.
Unprecedented times call for new and innovative approaches to delivering care. Healthcare professionals and organizations continue to struggle with staff turnover, increased patient demand, and changing care delivery expectations and reimbursement models. Pam Gould, RN, MHA, Chief Growth Officer and Jon Gautsch, Senior Vice President of Engineering at AristaMD, suggest practical solutions for payers, health systems, ACOs and, most importantly, providers use to overcome these challenges.
