Continuing medical education
Applying best practices
Numerous studies have shown that a patient’s primary healthcare experience and, to some extent, their healthcare outcomes are largely dependent upon provider and patient interactions. That’s why Anthem Blue Cross and Blue Shield (Anthem) has an online learning site called My Diverse Patients that offers insights on how to communicate with your diverse patient population.
Through the use of compelling real-life stories that convey practical strategies for implementing patient care, providers learn how to apply best practices.
Improving the Patient Experience
What Matters Most: Improving the Patient Experience can be accessed using your smartphone, tablet or computer. Providers may apply their completion of the course toward continuing medical education (CME) credit certification. The training has been reviewed and is acceptable for up to one prescribed credit by the American Academy of Family Physicians.
*This curriculum is available at no cost to providers and their clinical staff nationwide.
How will this benefit you and your office staff?
You will learn tips and techniques to:
- Improve communication skills.
- Build patient trust and commitment.
- Expand your knowledge of the Consumer Assessment of Healthcare Providers and Systems (CAHPS®) survey.
CAHPS® is a registered trademark of the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ).
Like you, Anthem is committed to improving the patient experience in all interactions, and we are proud to work collaboratively with our provider network to provide support and tools to reach our goal.
