Doing the Right Thing for Our Patients- Leading as a Professional
Presented by the Organized Medical Staff Section (OMSS) of the American Medical Association. As the influence of health care reform unfolds, the role of physicians and their organizations will inevitably change. Given these changes, the relationship between physicians and their hospitals or physician organization will alter as a result. More physicians are becoming employed or under contract with an organization. Physicians will need to serve as leaders more now than ever to ensure the highest quality of care and value is provided in their communities and to protect the patient-physician relationship. Should you have any questions regarding this activity please contact Katie Pajak at kathryn.pajak@ama-assn.org or 312.464.5450.
