AACI Physician Clinical Leadership Initiative Will Meet October 15th

AACI’s Physician Clinical Leadership Initiative (PCLI) invites physician leaders responsible for cancer center clinical operations to attend an in-person meeting at the 2017 AACI/CCAF Annual Meeting in Washington, DC, on October 15. Program topics will include the role of advanced practice nursing in cancer quality and an overview of two Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Quality Programs—the Medicare Access and CHIP Reauthorization Act of 2015 (MACRA) and Merit-based Incentive Payment System (MIPS).

In response to rapid changes in healthcare delivery and the expectation to "do more with less," AACI created PCLI as a forum for physician leaders responsible for overseeing clinical operations at cancer centers. This forum aims to be a resource for creating "best practices" to assist physician leaders in addressing challenges like clinical services reimbursement, quality care and patient satisfaction, integrating electronic medical records with other cancer center information technology, assimilating clinical research and clinical programs to increase trial accrual and developing performance metrics. More information about the AACI PCLI can be found at aaci-cancer.org/pcli.asp.

If you are interested in attending the 5th Annual PCLI Meeting and/or the 2017 AACI/CCAF Annual Meeting, more information, including hotel, preliminary program, speakers list and electronic registration, is now available on the AACI website.

Registration for the in-person PCLI meeting is included with all annual meeting registrations. Separate registration is also available to attendees who plan to attend only the PCLI meeting on October 15. If you have any questions about the PCLI or the upcoming meeting, please contact Janie Hofacker, Director of Programs.
