JACKSON, Mich.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Anesthesia Business Consultants (ABC), a leading provider in billing and practice management for the anesthesia and pain management specialty, is pleased to announce that the Summer 2014 issue of its quarterly newsletter, The Communiqué, is now available.
The Communiqué is a publication dedicated to bringing articles and advice, specific to the anesthesia and pain management community, that are practical and tangible. ABC is happy to provide The Communiqué electronically as well as hard-copy versions. The Communiqué features articles focusing on the latest hot topics for anesthesiologists, nurse anesthetists, pain management specialists and anesthesia practice administrators.
Tony Mira, President & CEO, explains, “The Summer 2014 issue features helpful advice from expert contributors, starting with Sonya Pease, MD, MMSC, Chief Medical Officer, TeamHealth Anesthesia, who invites us to consider that customers of service industries such as restaurants reward outcomes rather than work processes in Working for Tips…. Patients’ perception of the caliber of the care they receive is determined in part by their doctors’ communication skills, whether we believe that patients are appropriate judges of quality medical care or not.”
We also offer strategic advice from Howard Greenfield, MD, Founder and Principal, Enhance Perioperative & Anesthesia Consulting, with Pre-Op Your Anesthesia Practice, who cautions, “The radically changing healthcare world will confront all hospital-based anesthesia group practices with complex and difficult choices. Do you stay the course and try to postpone the inevitable, or pursue alternatives to the status quo? Either way, aren’t you better off mitigating the surprise factor now, rather than in the middle of a group take-over, merger, sale or offer of hospital employment?”
For these and other informative and thought-provoking articles, please log on to ABC’s web site at www.anesthesiallc.com and click the link to view the electronic version of The Communiqué online. To be put on the automated email notification list, please send your email address to firstname.lastname@example.org.
