F096 - The Future of Dermatology: What Changes are Coming and How Can We Prepare?
Sunday, February 18; 1:00 PM - 3:00 PM
Following this course, the attendee should be able to:
- Prepare for major changes in insurance coverage, quality and cost measurement, and payment being implemented by Medicare and private health plans.
- Examine disruptive technologies and tactics that are rapidly affecting the specialty and causing barriers to the delivery of care.
- Analyze reasons for dermatologists as a specialty to collect our own quality and cost data to demonstrate our value, and to design sustainable payment mechanisms that reward quality care and preserve access (rather than having them designed by others).
This session will focus on the latest on MACRA, Dataderm, Drug Pricing and Accessibility, Breaking Issues with Private Insurers and Medicare, Truth in Advertising, and Ways to Avoid Burnout.
