Portland IPA creates educational opportunities for physicians and their staff to provide timely knowledge for improving clinical processes and obtaining resources for optimal patient and economic outcomes.
Some of these opportunities include "Lunch & Learn" meetings for Clinic Managers. A few of the past topics covered at these meetings are: Project Management 101, Human Resources, and Open Forum with Health Plans.
Primary Care Physicians and their staff have received education from IPA staff about Annual Wellness Visits for Medicare Advantage plans. IPA staff has also arranged for HCC coding education in their clinics.
Physicians can obtain clinical and business education at IPA sponsored Physician Breakfasts as well.
