Education and professional development related to orthopaedic practice management is an important feature of AAOE membership. Valuable resources offered to members to fulfill this aim include AAOE webinars and the Live Learning Center. The live webinars provide members with the opportunity to learn about topics relating specifically to orthopaedic practice management, and the Live Learning Center gives members access to recorded content (including webinars) so that continued learning is available anytime.
AAOE webinars are hosted throughout the year on subjects impacting orthopaedic practice professionals.
Topics covered in AAOE webinars include:
- Human resources
- Strategic planning
When a particularly relevant or timely event affecting orthopaedic practices occurs, AAOE will host a webinar series to thoroughly address the topic. This month, AAOE launched a webinar series on the recently-passed Merit-based Incentive Payment System (MIPS), which will affect a provider’s Medicare reimbursement beginning in 2019. The two-part series will help attendees prepare before the final ruling on MIPS is released on or around November 1, 2016. The first part in the series was held Thursday, August 18.
Webinars for Professional Development
AAOE webinars and the Live Learning Center are excellent tools for year-round education and professional development. Webinars typically run one to two hours long—so attendees only have to dedicate a small portion of their day to learning new information or brushing up on a topic they have experience in. Many webinars also include access to tools and resources so that learning does not have to stop once the presentation ends!
AAOE webinars can also serve as a resource for training and development for employees. Webinars may be watched by an entire department or office by showing it in a conference room or other setting that allows for multiple viewers. Or, recorded content from the Live Learning Center can be used for training at any time of the year.
With the Live Learning Center, members can fully utilize any AAOE educational content that has been recorded!
In the Live Learning Center, members will find recorded webinars, as well as downloadable content from previous AAOE Annual Conferences.
Recorded content is a great educational resource for members who want to:
- Save content from a webinar that was particularly relevant or useful to them.
- Watch a webinar they were unable to attend but would have gotten valuable information from.
- Share content with an employee or colleague who could benefit from information included in a webinar.
Recorded webinars will be posted in the Live Learning Center within a week after the live webinar takes place.
