Summit leaders to present at AMGA Annual Conference


Thousands of healthcare leaders will gather for the AMGA Annual Conference in Phoenix March 7-10 to exchange ideas with the best and brightest minds in the industry – including those from Summit.

Clyde Worley, M.D., of Summit Medical Group and Kimberly Kauffman, M.P.H., chief value-based care officer for Summit Strategic Solutions, will present at the conference on the topic: “Medicare Annual Wellness Visits, Proactive Risk Adjustment Initiatives, Coding, and Your Bottom Line.”

Dr. Worley and Kauffman will explain how a three-pronged approach of provider education, pre-visit planning and coding support is achieving an 85% completion rate with Medicare annual wellness visits (MAWVs) for Summit Medical Group patients. When properly implemented, MAWVs can improve quality of care, enhance patient experience, decrease utilization of unnecessary services, enhance patient attribution and more.

Summit continues to serve as a leader in patient care here in East Tennessee and across the healthcare industry.
