A Patient Advocate's View

You have to be in it to win it.

A leading physician practice management consultant called me today to ask about marketing a new Article 28 multi-specialty practice. I suggested to her that she look up the record on who was recently approved in NYS and to call them for their marketing plan. Are referrals still based on friendships or hospitall connections? Are Accountable Care Organizations or Insurance Plan Preferred Provider Organizations going to run the health care delivery system?

Here is the last chance for providers and others to be heard about how the ACA will be implemented in NYS. You or your organization can attend these meetings, no charge. lf you want your opinion in the record, make sure you put it in writing and send in advance or be there to testfy.
