Registration still open for 17th Annual Medical Staff Leadership Advance
There is still time to make plans to attend TRA GSC’s annual Medical Staff Leadership Advance, to be held at the Hyatt Regency in Greenville on Thursday and Friday, March 22 & 23, 2018. The Advance, now in its 17th year, is our premier educational event for physicians, advanced practice providers, and risk managers. The 2018 program will focus on the potential pitfalls of electronic medical records, issues inherent in monitoring patients, and what we have learned about improving documentation.

Along with featuring nationally known speakers who will address broad issues regarding the role of technology, the two-day event will include presentations and case studies from risk managers and claims consultants with a comprehensive understanding of liability issues in South Carolina. Participants will:
  • Use claims data and case studies, discuss and develop strategies for mitigation of monitoring related risks

  • Discuss trends in EMR use and strategies for improved documentation

  • Discuss strategies for using technology to improve care and outcomes
This program is open to all healthcare organizations. Organizations that are members of Palmetto Hospital Trust or PHLIP (either the liability or stop-loss program) can send up to 10 participants at no charge.

The Advance is an exceptionally useful program which consistently earns high marks from registrants each year. We are pleased that this event has been approved for:
  • A maximum of 8 AMA PRA Category 1 CreditsTM

  • 7.5 hours of continuing education credits by the National Association Medical Staff Services

  • 8.08 CNEs (Continuing Nursing Education)
