Rooms: Grand Ballroom 7&8

SESSION I: “Measuring Academic Productivity: Implementation of An aRVU Model”
Faculty: Arthur Grant, MD, Associate Professor of Neurology at SUNY Downstate; Augusto Miravalle, MD, Associate Professor of Neurology, Vice Chair, Education, Director, Neurology Residency Program at University of Colorado Denver School of Medicine
Drs. Grant and Miravalle will present on their department’s implementation of an Academic RVU system for tracking non-clinical productivity.
Monday, October 17, 2016 – 7:30 am – 9:00 am
SESSION II: “Teleneurology in Academic Practice”
Faculty: Ray Dorsey, MD, MBA, and Lawrence Wechsler, MD
The idea is that Dr. Wechsler would focus on hospital-based teleneurology and telestroke, while Dr. Dorsey would focus on outpatient models. There are a variety of issues to address for each setting, but I would encourage you to focus on issues that will be of interest to chairs of academic neurology departments, which would include the costs involved in setting up a program, how appointments are managed, reimbursement for teleneurology visits, whether teleneurology improves patient access and/or reduces costs, quality of care, HIPAA issues, etc.
Tuesday, October 18, 2016 – 7:30 am – 9:00 am
SESSION III: “Neuroscience Service Lines in Academic Neurology”
Faculty: Frances Jensen, MD, FACP, Joseph Broderick, MD; Brett M. Kissela, MD, MS
The questions envisioned for discussion include the following:
- How has Neuroscience Service Line implementation affected:
- Departmental finances?
- Faculty workload?
- Patient care?
- Interactions with Neurosurgery and other affiliated departments?
- Research, academic productivity and research funding?
- Faculty morale and sense of autonomy?
- What is your overall impression of the advantages and disadvantages of NSL structure for Neurology?
- What can we do as Chairs to adapt to and thrive in this new environment?
