This extended model will include the same content that is covered during the ALIE but will be covered over the course of 5 weeks. The content will be covered during live sessions and self-guided activities. This includes (10) 1-hour live sessions with our instructor team and will include a combination of small group sessions and 1-on-1 sessions. Small group sessions will be conducted via a set schedule whereas 1-on-1 sessions will be scheduled to accommodate your schedule as well as the schedule of the instructor for that session. In addition, this model will include a 30-minute 1-on-1 session with Amina at the end of the program to discuss your personalized business planning needs. During the 5-week training, you will have access to live office hours to review questions surrounding the content, cases, and activities. This access to office hours and an additional library of videos will continue for a total of three months. You will not loose access to the content covered during the ALIE training or during the pre-work. As another addition to this re-envisioned model, the ALIE will include a high-level clinic Assessment where you can provide details on one of the clinics you are approaching and we can help you evaluate the opportunity with a fully detailed report of how many hours you might need to dedicate to that clinic.
2. Is the CCTDE pre-work required?
Yes, to benefit the most from the training we require the pre-work to be completed. This bundle includes over 8 hours of content that is eligible for CPE credits and covers the following topics: Provider Quality Measures, Medical Billing, Annual Wellness Visits, Non-Face-to-Face Services (CCM, RPM, and BHI), and Pharmacy Management of Major Chronic Disease States. Additionally, we have added bonus pre-work for the Transitional Care Management (TCM) codes and a recording on Working with ACOs. We have seen great success with the pre-work and participants report feeling much more prepared to implement. This being said, participants who do not complete the pre-work will likely not be prepared for the ALIE material so it is in your best interest as well as the interest of other participants if you complete this by the deadline. We request that all participants complete this one week prior to the start of the ALIE. Once you register for the ALIE, you will receive a notice that you are also registered for the pre-work bundle. The content for the pre-work can be accessed on each individual pre-work course. The TCM and ACO recording can be found directly on the ALIE course. These two recordings are not eligible for CPE credits.
3. What is the program cost?
The program cost of the newly remodeled ALIE will be the same cost of the previous ALIE, a total of $3,000 for the program. This includes the 8.5 hours of content, eligible for CPE credits and covered as pre-work (sold separately for $499- CCTDE bundle) . We invest in our training programs and continue to update the content to reflect changes in the industry, recent challenges that we have encountered, as well as new ways to innovate. We are dedicated to continuously testing new services and models to ensure that our teachings come from experience, which makes the content much more worthwhile to our participants.
4. What support is provided after the training?
We have built out subscription models for those that want additional support following the training. In this new ALIE model we include 3 months of subscription office hours. This includes access to weekly office hours, discounts on additional courses and consultations as well as access to our library of additional recorded material. We encourage our participants to stay connected and keep each other up-to-date on progress. We have had over 150 pharmacists from across the country complete our ALIE training and we have seen success in a variety of settings. We invite all of our previous ALIE graduates to stay engaged on our social media platforms as well as through our community board on the website.
5. Why can't I see the content yet?
The content is set to drip-feed based on the day of the training. For example, content relevant to day will release on the first day of the training as to not overwhelm participants with the handouts and resources available on the course.
6. How is this training different from programs that you offer in collaboration with other organizations?
We offer training programs with many organizations but no training is as in-depth and comprehensive as our ALIE. This ALIE course focuses on the collaborative clinical services and everything that is required to start offering clinical services. Some of our participants have referred to this training as a turn-key course because we talk through all the details of the WHY, HOW, and WHAT of clinical services. It is important to understand the codes and requirements for those codes but it is more important to understand the language and background behind sharing the value of pharmacist-led clinical services. Our team has been offering collaborative clinical services since 2013 and we infuse our years of experience into this 5-week training. There really is nothing quite like this training and this is one reason why our instructor team is so passionate about sharing our stories. Many of our other programs are meant to be exploratory courses where we share the many pathways that pharmacists can pursue for clinical services in both the pharmacist-billed and provider-billed settings.
7. How will you cover the same content of the 3-day ALIE in 10 hours of live sessions?
Our previous ALIE model included time for working through cases and self-guided activities. This time has been shifted to allow for you to complete these activities on your own schedule. This will allow for everyone to work at their own pace to be sure that they are absorbing the content and come to the live sessions with their questions fully formed. This new model also targets consultant pharmacists, meaning the group will likely have similar questions. Additionally, since we are working with a smaller group of individuals, we will likely have fewer interruptions during the live sessions. Participants will have access to office hours to join for any remaining questions from the live sessions.
