Join us at HAS 17 – September 12-14, 2017 in Salt Lake City

Continuing Medical Education (CME)

Why and how is HAS 2016 qualified for the CME credits?

Many different learning methods will be used at HAS 2016 to optimize interactive learning:

More Case Study Sessions: Our goal is offer a variety of case study presentations from many health systems addressing a wide range of clinical, technical, operational, and financial issues. We will provide a consistent, pragmatic approach to sharing best practices and key lessons to help accelerate the learning curve in your organization.

Hands-On Experiences for Teams or Individuals: Lectures alone are insufficient to real learning, so we are providing experiences where attendees can engage in team-based activities, role plays, and discussions. We are using the concept of "ah ha" experiences, interesting educational examples, vignettes, and audience-based activities to demonstrate that key principles are fun and memorable.  

Analytics-driven Engagement: Analytics will flow through the three-day summit touching every aspect of the agenda. In the HAS 16 event application, we will display 30 breakout session descriptions, real-time polling, questions and answers, networking, gamification experiences, and some interactions and analytics using i-beacon location sensing technology.

Handouts: We are including lessons learned slides and handouts for note taking and the “choose one thing” takeaway notebook at the end of every breakout session.

Networking: We’ll provide networking opportunities and use analytics in creative ways to allow participants to find and connect with each other. See the "Networking" tab for more information about in-person networking opportunities.

After attending the conference, participants should be better able to:

Understand and apply data interpretation tools to identify patterns in data and measure and monitor improvement. Discover patterns in the data to ignite meaningful, scalable, and sustainable change.

Most importantly, learn from a variety of health system case studies to better understand how to apply the teaching to real situations.

Identify essential teams and key interactions, explain the benefits of using an iterative or Agile approach for improvement, and understand how to leverage the organization's analytic system to accelerate lean process improvement. Most importantly, learn from real life examples to better understand how to apply these principles in actual situations.

Understand how to identify cohorts of patients for quality improvement initiatives, how to use evidence to identify and eliminate waste, and the importance of standardizing care delivery through shared common baselines.

How many credits do I get?

MDs and DOs who attend HAS 16, starting with the Analytics Walkabout, are eligible to receive 17.0 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits ™.  For those MDs and DOS who attend the pre-summit activities, total credits will amount to a maximum of 24.5 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™.  All other healthcare professionals will receive a certificate of attendance and should consult with their licensing board for information on applicability and acceptance of these credits.

American Academy of Physician Assistants (AAPA), American Academy of Nurse Practitioners (AANP), and the American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC) accept certificates of attendance for educational activities designated for AMA PRA Category 1 Credit ™ from organizations accredited by the ACCME. 

Other healthcare professionals receiving a certificate of attendance should consult with their licensing board for information on applicability and acceptance.

What do I need to do to get the credits?

Each attendee will receive a hard copy Record of Attendance (ROA) at registration to track their hours and keep for their own records. Instructions will be included in the ROA on how to access the CME website for evaluations and certificates. Only MDs and DOs will self-claim their credits, meaning they will use their ROA to track their hours and have it available (with total number of credits) when they log in to the post-conference tab.

All other attendees will log in to the same location but they will not self-claim; the number of credits on their Certificate of Attendance will default to the maximum number of credits available for the conference. 

This activity has been approved for a maximum of 22.5 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™.

All attendee records are maintained by the UT Health Science Center at San Antonio, Office of CME, for a maximum period of 6 years.
