          Compose Your World

          Whether in education, business, healthcare, or government, the systems and routines we depended on for so long have disappeared. While this void has been devastating, it also leaves us with an incredible opportunity: a blank page on which we can compose our future. We will look back at this time as the moment we made leaps forward by creating more innovative technologies, more human-centric businesses, and more inclusive workplaces. As a violinist and keynote speaker, Kai Kight believes that music can be used not only as an escape during this difficult time, but as a guide for us to learn from as we look to redesign our lives and work

          Healthcare worker well-being was a challenge before the pandemic, now it is a parallel pandemic. Our recent NIH R01 grant used Randomized Controlled Trials to demonstrate that we can cause well-being to improve using simple, practical, bite-sized strategies, and that these improvements endure for the medium and long term. In this talk, we will demonstrate the mechanisms at work that cause burnout, and look at how evidence-based interventions counteract those mechanisms to result in well-being improvements.

          10:30am-11:30am
          Things to Talk About Other Than the Price of Gas

          It is imperative to understand Medical Necessity in the eyes of the government and commercial payors in comparison to the practice of medicine. The intent of the presentation is to bring to the audience a relative discussion regarding the compliance concerns of the federal government as defined by “medical necessity” and to discuss openly and honestly what the term meant and where we are today based on years of experience. We will EXPLORE the bumpy road to understanding what needs to be documented in your record, on your claim, and even the medical records of others to define “medical necessity” from an auditors viewpoint.

          Renee M. Brown, CMIS, ACS-EM, CHA

          The presentation will review the most serious online threats today, including extortionate attacks involving ransomware and business email compromises. It will also provide an overview of the “dark web,” a criminal online market place where malicious actors buy and sell criminally derived information and property, and various malicious services. The presentation will then review the HIPAA Breach Notification Rule and the state data breach notification statutes as they are commonly triggered by the theft of PHI and other personal information during extortionate attacks. Since ransomware is such a significant ongoing threat, the presentation will also review questions and procedures to be considered if ransom might be paid. Finally, the presentation will review a number of risk mitigation measures to be implemented.

          Sean Hoar

          Historically, people within the LGBTQ+ community have experienced marginalization by the healthcare system in the United States. Common feedback received is that clinicians do not create a care environment that is culturally competent nor welcoming to LGBTQ+ patients and their support network. Further, the traditional methods of conducting and documenting a history and physical exam are insensitive or inappropriate for these patients. This session will focus on exploring laws designed to improve access and delivery of care to LBGTQ+ patients, and reviewing clinical recommended best practices for intake, history, examination, documentation and billing of their visits in order to reach the goals of a culturally competent medical practice.

          Erin Dewberry, Esq

          Laura Nordberg, RN, MBA, JD, CPHRM

          10:30am-11:30am
          Men's Health

          We will start with what it means today to be a mens’ health specialist, including training and specific diagnoses. Discussion will include an illustration of key guidelines from the AUA regarding different facts of men’s health. Application of these guidelines to common patient scenarios, focusing on how they may present to a PCP and how providers can initiate diagnosis and treatment will be reviewed. Topics include fertility, erectile dysfunction and sexual health, hypogonadism and prostate cancer screening.

          John Doolittle, MD

          Pediatric obesity is a serious, long-term public health challenge that has been exacerbated by the COVID-19 pandemic. Children and teenagers struggling with overweight and obesity have had a significant increase in weight gain since the pandemic began. Recognition, evaluation, and treatment of obesity and its comorbidities in youth by primary care providers is more important than ever. The presentation will briefly review the American Academy of Pediatrics Expert Committee Recommendations on the risk factors for pediatric obesity and assessment of obesity in children and adolescents. Evaluation for and initial management of the most common comorbidities will be reviewed, followed by a case presentation, Q&A, and discussion session. Resources will be provided for attendees interested in optimizing their management of pediatric obesity in their practice.

          Ashley Weedn, MD, MPH, FAAP

          Historically, there has been a lot of emphasis on the ‘hard skills’ necessary to prevent malpractice such as technical competence and knowledge. Patient satisfaction, patient engagement, and collaborative care have, in many ways, shifted the focus solely from clinicians’ knowledge and technical acumen to a broader range of desirable skills — including many soft skills. The number of soft skills is vast, and examples include empathy, humility, active listening, communication, teamwork, critical thinking, honesty, integrity, leadership, and respect. Emerging evidence also shows that enhancing soft skills can benefit physicians by cultivating better doctor–patient relationships, alleviating burnout, and reducing professional liability exposure. This presentation will focus on effective ways to communicate, build relationships, solve problems, and maintain professionalism, while improving patient safety and outcomes and reducing burnout and the risk of medical malpractice.

          Benefits of Physician Wellness Programs: Best Practice for Mitigating Physician Burnout and Improving Physician Health

          Oklahoma’s Physician Wellness Program was developed as a proactive strategy for mitigating physician burnout and improving the physical, social and emotional wellbeing of the physicians they serve. Dr. Tobin will discuss the applications of the program and their roles in effective physician self-care and risk management including self-care as an ethical imperative; self-awareness, self-monitoring and self-assessment (Goleman: EI); positive career sustaining behaviors; and maladaptive coping strategies.

          Paul Tobin, PhD, PC

          This almost entirely interactive workshop will provide the background and use of improv theater techniques as well as establish the conditions for participants to engage in the practice of these skills. Following practice of these skills, discussions will be had in both small and large group about how the skills that were practiced are able to be practiced in the personal and professional lives of each individual participants. The skills practiced will be focused on increasing participants wellness as they each navigate their individually unique work and life responsibilities. The one common factor assumed is that each participant leads a busy and challenging career with no further or limited amount of time to add additional tasks or training to their schedules. The skills practiced will allow participants to have more enjoyment doing the activities and tasks they are already doing in their everyday work and professional lives.

          COPD Update

          COPD is one of the leading causes of death worldwide and is the fourth leading cause of death (126,000 deaths per year) in the U.S. It accounts for 3.2% of all physician office visits annually. It is estimated that health care costs attributable to COPD will reach $49 billion by 2020, up from an estimate of $32.1 billion in 2010. In addition to costs to the health care system, COPD also costs employers. In 2010, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention estimated that total absenteeism costs were $3.9 billion, with an estimated 16.4 million days of work lost. Although there is no cure for COPD, it is often preventable and can be effectively managed through treatment. Because most patients are diagnosed by their primary care clinician, those providers must be prepared to address the highly variable clinical features and responses to therapy. Additionally, diagnosis and treatment of COPD are rapidly changing, so understanding recent advances are important for delivering optimal patient care.

          Lung cancer is the leading cause of cancer death in the United States, with an estimated 220,000 new diagnoses of lung cancer in 2018 resulting in more than 150,000 deaths, making lung cancer more deadly than breast, prostate and colon cancer combined. Although the number of new cases of lung cancer is declining, the death rate from lung cancer continues to be staggering. Among new diagnoses in the United States, approximately 40% occur in current smokers, 40% in former smokers, and 20% in patients who have never smoked. Difficulties faced in the treatment of lung cancer are compounded by the frequent late stage of diagnosis in combination with associated environmental and genetic factors. Recent advances in lung cancer research have provided improved understanding and stratification of different types of non-small-cell lung cancer. This has led to a further research which has and continues to identify targetable molecular and genetic mutations as well as biomarkers of immunotherapeutics. We are now entering an era of personalized therapy in which lung cancer is characterized by specific potentially targetable genetic alterations and biomarkers to immunotherapy.

          Dan Nader, DO, FCCP, FACP

          Asthma is a chronic respiratory disease that affects more than 339 million people globally. Clinical immunologists/allergists, pulmonologists, and other specialists who manage patients with asthma are increasingly tasked with personalizing the choice of treatment based on severity of symptoms, presence of comorbidities, and disease phenotypes and endotypes. This presentation will focus on the current clinical data, treatment recommendations, and international guidelines.

          Janelle Whitt, DO

          10:30am-11:30am
          Sexual Harassment in the Work Place: What is it? How to Address it?

          This presentation will discuss the three different forms of sexual harassment: quid pro quo; hostile work environment and third party. There will be examples of what behaviors constitute the 3 types of harassment and examples that have arisen in the context of healthcare employers. There will also be an overview of what employers should do to address harassment complaints and how victims of harassment should react.

          Cori Loomis, Esq

          Credentialing is much more than information needed for insurance reimbursement. It’s about qualifications for the practice of medicine and medical specialties and subspecialties. Privileging as a part of the credentialing process is based on an evaluation of the applicant’s competency which is comprised of knowledge, skill and experience. Ultimately they are about patient safety. This program will explore credentialing and privileging pitfalls, the regulatory environment, some case law and claims statistics. We will discuss how these impact professional and corporate liability.

          Gordon Sanders, RN, BSN, CPHRM, FASHRM

          Medical licensure boards serve a vital role in the provision of safe patient care to the people of the state in which they serve. Both the allopathic and osteopathic boards protect the public by requiring a high level of qualifications, standards and education for those they license. In addition, it is the responsibility of the licensure boards to monitor, investigate and effectuate necessary disciplinary action to their licensees while ensuring the licensee with due process and the rights afforded under the law. Join Lyle Kelsey, Executive Director of the Oklahoma Board of Medical Licensure and Supervision and Michael Leake, JD, Executive Director of the Oklahoma State Board of Osteopathic Examiners as they discuss the role of the licensure boards in addressing licensing and unprofessional conduct for MDs and DOs in the state of Oklahoma.

          The new guidelines proposed this year by the CDC for Opioid Prescribing will focus on being used as a clinical tool to improve communication between clinicians and patients and empower them to make informed, person-center decisions related to pain care together. CDC recognizes that the 2016 Guidelines were often applied as inflexible standards of care by healthcare professionals, health systems, pharmacies, third-party payers or governmental jurisdictions. This presentation will focus on the key points of the CDC Guidelines of 2022. Focus will be on patient selection for opioid therapy, non-opioid therapy treatment options and the appropriate use of opioid therapy. Emphasis will be made on the risks of opioid therapy to include Opioid Use Disorder and other side effects of chronic opioid therapy. High dose opioid prescribing as well as the management of opioid tapers and discontinuation of therapy will be emphasized as this was a significant concern of the CDC after the release of the 2016 Guidelines. A review of the implications of SB 1446/848 in the management of acute and chronic pain patients and how it impacts your practice will be included. *This program meets the requirements set forth in Oklahoma SB1446/848 for pain management, opioid use or addiction education for MDs and PAs and the Proper Prescribing credit required by the Oklahoma State Board of Osteopathic Examiners.

          Women’s Healthcare in 2022: Awareness, Pitfalls

          Speaker will provide background on women's cardiovascular health, including commonly observed illness types and potential complications. Heart disease is the leading cause of death for women in the United States, and needs active management and prevention strategies. Collaboration between primary care and cardiology is a critical part of the healthcare plan and should be facilitated due to the complex nature of providing modern healthcare. Providers need increased awareness of the information patients see on the internet/media, and ads or other providers purporting to offer established medical advice. The presentation will discuss recognition of symptoms in females, diagnostic considerations, testing modalities/experience and treatments. Ongoing management of many cardiac conditions will be required over time, including hospitalization and rehospitalization prevention, practical considerations for the patient, and requires and integrated approach for success.

          Value Scale (RBRVS) version of fee for service medicine in place since 1992 physicians have been paid for services rendered, based on the cost of the inputs to those services, with no consideration of effectiveness or patient outcomes. Over the past decade increasing attention has been paid to the misaligned incentives of fee for service medicine, the very high and unsustainable cost of healthcare in the United States, and a significant number of value-based or accountable care initiatives and pilot programs. Now with the recently released CMS Innovation Center Strategy Refresh Medicare has announced its intention for all Medicare and Medicaid beneficiaries to "be in a care relationship with accountability for quality and total cost of care by 2030". Private payer health plans are often engaged and following CMS's lead in the multi-payer pilot programs but are also independently following suit and driving their own value-based payment arrangements. Population-based alternative payment systems virtually all use some form of risk adjustment to ensure physicians are paid appropriately for the disease burden and costs of their patient population, instead of paying a fee for service transactional payment based on services rendered. Risk adjustment impacts both the calculation of cost of care as well as the quality of care (outcome metrics). This presentation will review the critical concepts and management skills of risk adjustment with the focus of ensuring physicians understand and can actively manage the documented risk of their patients and population.

          This is probably the best conference I’ve ever been to. The motivational speakers are outstanding. You’re just left with a really good feeling. And then the professional part of the program was outstanding as well. Some really top-notch speakers and their specialties and I felt like I learned a whole lot.

          I choose to come to EXPLORE because it’s well put together. It’s been organized from the top down very well. Every year the speakers have been very good. It makes me think beyond medicine. Sometimes it’s about adventure, sometimes it’s about crises but each time it pulls us out of our silos of medicine and puts it into a different mind thought. I also enjoy the camaraderie of people that I don’t see for maybe once a year, but people I’ve known for maybe 20 to 30 years.

          EXPLORE provides a great avenue to meet with physicians and healthcare workers around the state to educate them on some of the newer things we have as far as technology and advances in treatment for cancer. PLICO has done a great job with this conference and getting their brand name out there.
