136X – Redesigning Peer Review: Making an IMPPACT

Thursday, March 26th

About the Session

For decades the traditional organized medical staff model has provided a professional, political and social forum for physicians to discuss clinical issues, define professional perspectives, address professional concerns and form a network for communication. This is a century-old institution that, in today’s new paradigm of value-based health services delivery, must transform and evolve into a culture that is responsive, agile and willing to standardize to best practice.

This evolution begins with implementation of what INTEGRIS has termed the Integrity Through Monitoring Professional Performance to Advance Clinical Transformation (IMPPACT) Program. IMPPACT is a standardized, transparent, fair, objective, valid, reliable and consistent process used to improve professional practices around quality, safety, service and cost-effectiveness. This seminar will showcase several interconnected components of the program for you to evaluate against your own organization’s processes. Examples of some of the core components of the program include that it provides colleague-driven support for physicians in their pursuit of clinical excellence through professional performance evaluation, and that it promotes implementation and promotion of a nonpunitive culture.

Learning Objectives:

  • Evaluate your organization’s use of professional performance as a driver of quality, patient safety and high reliability.
  • Develop strategies and deploy a professional performance program that supports a just culture and provides an opportunity for physicians to learn and improve.
