The Life of the Virtualist
The virtualist will soon be as common as the hospitalist. Telemedicine is a rapidly evolving field and quality can vary greatly, as it can in all forms of medicine. Pediatricians are in the best position to provide quality telemedicine for their patients within the medical home and with access to the medical record. The addition of technology that allows home exam will make telemedicine appropriate in more and more situations. It is important to set parental expectations as to what is and is not appropriate and when antibiotics can appropriately be prescribed. Learn how telemedicine is currently being used and what the future holds.

Lean in a Bit Closer to the Screen
Key commercial and Medicaid payers in our market are now reimbursing for provider-to-patient telemedicine visits. But how easy is it to get patients and pediatricians face-to-face for online care? We will describe our early experience (successes and frustrations) implementing telemedicine into our busy primary care setting: technology challenges (practice & patient,) types of conditions/visits, work flow integration and inefficiencies, and "managing the online visit".

Six Days in September: Behind the Lines of a Social Media Anti-Vax Attack
In the last year, anti-vaccine forces have begun launching direct, coordinated social media attacks on pediatric practices that publicly advocate for vaccines. These attacks pose a direct threat not just to the daily operation and financial well-being of practices that support vaccines, but to publichealth and wellness as well. Through a detailed case study of one such attack, this session will educate providers on the people and places behind these attacks, the tactics they use, and the risks they pose. This in-the-trenches view will also offer strategies on how to prepare for, defend against, and clean up after an anti-vaxx attack.

Headlines vs Trendlines: How To Innovate in a World of Uncertainty
The health industry is on a reverse path from great-to-good. The pace of innovation is exceeding our ability to keep up. Why? Because most leaders believe innovation is about chasing the next shiny new object. The result, we are facing our 'oh shit' moment in health. We need to stop chasing headlines and start recognizing trendlines. To do this requires us to challenge old assumptions, and break free from mediocre thinking. We need to find new ways to inoculate ourselves against the status quo.

Integrating Mental Health Into Primary Care
Up to half of all questions posed to pediatricians are regarding behavior and development, and it is estimated that a third or more of all visits are behavioral. These visits tend to take an extra 10 to 20 minutes, and frequently require coordination with school services. Integrating psychological services into pediatric practices can improve care by providing these time intensive behavioral services, increase office efficiency, and increase family satisfaction. From a practice perspective, integrated care can improve visibility and revenue in a competitive market by establishing your practice as a home for comprehensive care.
