Susan Moffatt-Bruce

Biography
Physicians of all levels and specialties are being faced with external forces that renders caring for patients often stressful and even create unsafe environments for patients and providers. With governmental changes, payer contracting and consumerism driven healthcare, there are many externalities that affect physicians who often feel unable to impact their own provision of care. Dr. Moffatt-Bruce will present the national landscape around the value proposition whereby quality and cost are at the forefront of our attention and potentially distracting to the actual quality of care we deliver. The role of public reporting and the effect on providers will be also introduced as a reality as all providers are facing this; discussion around how physicians might impact measurement will be introduced. Lastly, considering the current healthcare environment, ways in which physicians and residents might best become more resilient through dedicated, mindfulness training, will be shared. Metrics of success that can be measured and tracked across the care continuum will be presented and ways in which these metrics might be shared with all care providers will be discussed. Ways in which other healthcare environments might adopt similar programs and measurement strategies will be highlighted.
