Upcoming CCI Webinars

Free online learning for all.


Leading Profound Change: Prototyping: May 14 at noon PT. Find out about the real benefit to rapid prototyping and some clear approaches to using it as a way to really refine your ideas quickly and cheaply. This is the third in a six-webinar series, following up on our workshops on leading change in ways that are impactful and more joyful.

Patient Intake: May 24 at noon PT. Learn how to reimagine your patient intake process, use tablets, and improve your waiting room experience. This webinar is part of our e-learning series hosted by Raven, CCI’s learning laboratory to discover, pilot, and connect digital health solutions.

Case Study Q&A with Monterey County Health Department – Integrating CareMessage with OCHIN Epic: May 31 at noon PT. Monterey implemented CareMessage, a texting program that enabled them to exchange text messages with patients a few years ago. Unfortunately, that data did not interface with our EHR and so was challenging to track in a holistic manner. Read the Q&A to learn more about how they tackled this challenge. Julie Edgcomb and Adriana Velez of Monterey County Health Department will be hosting a Q&A on this project. Please join us and bring your questions.

Case Study Q&A with Community Health Center Network – Tableau for HEDIS Palooza: June 28 at noon PT. Ella Schwartz will be hosting a Q&A on this project.  Please join us and bring your questions.

Leading Profound Change: PDSA: July 9 at noon PT. Each of us is unique in how we go about leading change and it shows up in what phase of the PDSA cycle we seem to like the best. It’s easy to get stuck in the part that makes us most comfortable. Tammy Fisher, from CCI, will share a treasure chest of real-world approaches and stories to help rev up your PDSA cycles for the greatest impact.
