TCPI: Share, Listen, Learn Webinar Series

To bring more AMA resources to the TCPI community, the AMA launched a monthly webinar series. The "Share, Listen, Learn" series delivered the topics that practices need to meet the five phases of practice transformation and thrive in the future. The series makes resources available in one place and provides simple yet instructive information on topics that relate to practice transformation.

Share, Listen, Learn series

This webinar series helped organizations and practices with health care transformation to value-based care by sharing existing resources, listening and participating in recorded events, and learning from the AMA Ed Hub on topics that relate to TCPI goals.

Stepwise mini-series

These webinars provided physicians with the tools and support to further develop their comprehensive quality improvement strategies. This mini-series, based off of the Transforming Clinical Practice Initiative (TCPI) practice assessment tool, covered various topic areas, including how to manage electronic health record (EHR) vendors for best reporting tactics, developing strategies to handle physician burnout and learning skills for working with high-risk patients.
