Essential Seminars for Physicians, LLC (ES4P) is a team of business and medical professionals dedicated to teaching all healthcare providers the skills to deliver high quality, safe and low cost care.  ES4P’s vision is to be the recognized leader providing practical on-line education that empowers and engages all physicians, medical professionals, and patients to cooperate and improve the delivery of medical care. In the past, providers have relied on administrators to develop and improve processes by which they deliver care.  The future will depend on those same providers, who see patients every day and understand their needs, to take a more active role.  By acquiring business skills essential to care delivery, providers will be equipped to bring the patient perspective into the  decision making process. ES4P’s mission is to make essential business skills and patient education easily accessible through an on-line format and available 24-7-365. 

ES4P has developed a program of study for healthcare providers that is best described as a “Pocket MBA”.  The CME/CE certified courses are designed to provide skills and tools that can be used immediately to improve patient satisfaction and care outcomes.  The courses speak to providers at all levels, including physicians, nurse practitioners, clinical nurse specialists, nurse case managers,  navigators and physician assistants.  The value of this knowledge is undisputed as evidenced by its inclusion most physician specialty boards and in the American Nurse Credentialing Center (AANC) maintenance of certification and credentialing requirements.  

The modern healthcare team includes physicians, certified registered nurse practitioners, clinical nurse specialists, and nurse case managers.  Although specific healthcare roles are defined during training, once in the clinical care setting it is team-based healthcare delivery that provides the best results.  A team must operate as a unit that encourages and values each member’s contribution to the provision and continual improvement of patient care.  Our educational courses and programs are designed to supply the tools to empower every member of that team to contribute to refining the way care patient is delivered.

The majority of problems medical professionals face today are not clinical.  Rather, problems arise in the delivery of clinical knowledge to patients.  Our content focuses on identifying the source of the problem and delivers the business skills needed to eliminate it.  Time and time again, providers who complete our courses say they are better prepared to continuously improve the quality and delivery of medical care as well as the health and well being of their patients.

 

CME Courses

 Since 2010, ES4P provides business knowledge, skills, and tools through in-person seminars and on-line educational videos.  In an effort to a develop state of the art learning experience, we use an interactive, on-line learning management system (LMS) platform.  Our platform enables us to have a course delivery method that addresses the needs of providers by offering effective learning, which can be accessed anywhere, on anything, at any time and allows them to earn Johns Hopkins Medicine CME/CE.  Our mobile experience is seamless.  Our LMS also possess a highly sophisticated activity tracking capability.  Organizations can track the activity of learners, determine their knowledge acquisition as well as collect course completion rates, number of certificate awards, and satisfaction data.  Tracking data of this type and aligning it with patient outcomes may be a very useful feature for patient education.  

            ES4P is also developing patient education courses.  It is clear that knowledge of a disease or medical condition correlates with better outcomes.  For many reasons, delivering effective education to patients has been a challenge.  Educating patients on-line using an interactive state of the art LMS is an effective tool. Patients who take our “Diabetes and Balance” course, have their activity tracked, knowledge acquisition tested, and receive achievement certificates.   Case managers and care coordinators will be able to correlate the activity with patient outcomes.  It is expected that patients will do better and the cost of their care will decrease.
