'Best Minds, Best Practices' in Medicine Conference on Nov. 11
Date:11/7/2008

EAST LANSING, Mich., Nov. 7 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The patient-centered medical home, personal health records and emergency department coverage will be among the topics at the annual "Best in Medicine" conference presented by the Michigan State Medical Society (MSMS) on Tuesday, Nov. 11, from 8:00 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. at The Inn at St. John's in Plymouth.

State and national experts will explore the health benefits and cost-savings of the emerging health care model that ensures coordinated patient care through a "medical home." The growth of accessible patient health records that can contribute to more efficient and coordinated care also will be explored.

Improving participation in physician on-call for hospital emergency departments also will be discussed. Physicians are increasingly concerned about the possibility of medical liability lawsuits when there is no established physician/patient relationship as is the case in most emergency situations.

Other topics to be discussed will include effective smoking cessation programs, the role of physician assistants in a medical practice, and community and workplace wellness programs, among others.

Cost is $150 for members of MSMS and the Michigan Medical Group Management Association. Cost is $190 for non-members. Members of the media are invited to attend.
