What Are They?
SE Healthcare offers an educational platform that includes surgical specialty-specific surveys called “Clinical Effectiveness Assessments”. The Clinical Effectiveness Assessments are comprised of surgical evidenced-based medicine and/or clinical practice guidelines along with measures of efficiency; health and burnout; patient experience/engagement; and patient safety. Clinical Effectiveness Assessments are eligible for AMA PRA Category I Credit(s)™.
This activity has been planned and implemented in accordance with the accreditation requirements and policies of the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME) through the joint providership of the Medical University of South Carolina and SE Healthcare. The Medical University of South Carolina is accredited by the ACCME to provide continuing medical education for physicians.
Managing Group and Practice Admins
Clinical Effectiveness Assessments include content based on recommendations or statements set forth by medical specialty associations, professional societies, government agencies or scientific research and is thoroughly vetted by a team of internal and external subject matter experts (entity examples include MBSAQIP, ASMBS, ABS, AHRQ, CMS, the Joint Commission, the Institute for Healthcare Improvement, etc.). Subject matter experts are actively practicing surgeons or clinicians who independently verify that the content is based on evidence and is accepted within the surgical specialty of medicine.
Our learners are practicing surgeons who use our tool for educational, self-assessment, and practice improvement/reimbursement enhancement purposes. Knowledge or practice gaps inform personal, professional and practiced-based performance improvement. The goal of our educational platform is to help hospitals, practices, and surgeons succeed in the modern healthcare environment by promoting safety and excellence.
The first section is comprised of surgical specialty-specific clinical practices. The remainder of the Clinical Effectiveness Assessment is comprised of standard (core) questions, found in all Clinical Effectiveness Assessments. The core content includes questions designed to assess key healthcare delivery, practice and provider measures. The measures are grouped into composites: Clinical Quality; Efficiency; Health and Burnout; Patient Experience/Engagement and Patient Safety.
Clinical Effectiveness Assessments take no more than 10 minutes to complete. When completed, the surgeons receives an email that provides a link to SE’s online platform where they can view their assessment results and a summary of the assessment, including whether their responses were preferred versus non-preferred. Associated rationale and commentary is provided.
Along with their assessment results, surgeons are also offered access to a learning library that includes videos and downloadable documents. Examples of video content titles include: Basics of Decision Making; Care Coordination; Clinical Decision Support; Changing Culture; Cognitive Errors in Healthcare; Medication Management; and Patient Centered Engagement. The learning library also includes over 380 downloadable forms. Examples of forms include: Diagnostic Test Tracking Log; Disclaimers for Patient Portal; Disclosing Medical Errors Policy; Terminating the Physician-Patient Relationship Policy; Event Management Policy; and a multitude of surgical procedure-specific informed consent forms.
