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 Spring 2017 issue of its quarterly newsletter, Communiqué, is now available.
Communiqué is a publication dedicated to bringing practical and tangible articles and advice, specific to the anesthesia and pain management community. Communiqué features articles focusing on the latest hot topics for anesthesiologists, nurse anesthetists, pain management specialists and anesthesia practice administrators. ABC offers Communiqué electronically as well as in hard copy, both on a complimentary basis.
Tony Mira, President & CEO, explains, “Much has happened on the healthcare legislative front since our last issue of Communiqué, published not long after the presidential election. We don’t know what future efforts to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act will look like or how the process will unfold, but this issue offers thoughts on some of the healthcare issues that will continue to matter to anesthesia practitioners during the next few years. We hope you find the articles thought-provoking and helpful.”
Neda Ryan, Esq., compliance counsel for ABC, provides some predictions for healthcare in a Trump era, noting that providers “should expect the Trump Administration to continue the Obama Administration’s fervent enforcement of healthcare-related laws and regulations.” Ryan advises anesthesiologists to remain vigilant in their compliance efforts and offers recommendations regarding health information technology and cybersecurity as well.
In their first article for Communiqué, Drs. Brianna Barker Caza and M. Teresa Cardador, organizational psychologists, suggest that “both the high identity investment associated with meaningful work and the moral distress inherent in the medical profession may pose particular challenges to physician well-being when individuals have work identity rigidity—an inability to consider other work identity possibilities and/or to initiate change or demonstrate plasticity in response to events and circumstances.” This lack of flexibility puts clinicians at risk for burnout. The authors offer adaptive strategies to help anesthesiologists cope.
