I was asked by a good friend who is an orthopedic surgeon to put together a list of action items that a forward-thinking orthopedic surgery group should be considering during these dynamic health care times. From my former experience running a successful orthopedic practice and my current work with CIVHC focusing on health care reform specific to paying for high-value health care, I have assembled a list of suggested “to-dos” that specialists should consider to remain vital in the upcoming years.
To be successful in health care in the future, all providers – specialists, primary care clinicians, hospitals, and other facilities – must start engaging in activities that demonstrate the value they can provide to patients and their health care partners. Now is the time to start focusing on your performance to be prepared for what health care reform brings your way. Please feel free to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have questions or would like to discuss any of my suggestions in more detail.
