Meeting Format

Didactic lectures, roundtable discussions and expert panels designed to refine your perspective on urology knowledge, care and practice.

Who should attend?

  • Urologists and practice administrators
  • LUGPA Forward members, defined as early-career physicians with less than 15 years of practice

Acquire actionable techniques and insight to enhance your integrated urology practice.

Delivering high-quality care is the goal of every independent urology practice. Yet, measuring and reporting quality measures has become increasingly more challenging in the emerging value-based market. This meeting will provide a forum to strengthen your knowledge, help you understand how quality is defined, measured and reported, and deliver proven methods to improve clinical excellence.

Special afternoon breakout sessions have been specially designed for LUGPA Forward physicians and Practice Administrators

Topics Include

Introduction on quality including how quality is measured and reported

A panel discussion on how to improve your MIPS scores

For the LUGPA Forward attendees — Strategic Financial Planning/Evaluation of Equity Options and how to leverage marketing and social media to build and enhance your practice

    • What are the ‘must haves’ of effective governance?
    • How does a group develop an effective governance model?
    • What is a practice administrator’s role in building and maintaining effective governance?
  • New Service Line Opportunities in Urology
