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 Fall 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 Fall 2014 issue features several experts in anesthesia practice management providing helpful advice, starting with Danielle Reicher, MD, an Anesthesiologist from San Diego, CA. Dr. Reicher describes a specific and very important application of EHR technology in Making Meaningful Use More Meaningful: communicating with patients." Dr. Reicher states, “While we may not be a daily fixture in the medical lives of our patients, our role is critical and the information we gather can be extremely vital to the electronic medical record. Let’s make Meaningful Use even more meaningful!”
Another author we are proud to feature is Steven Dale Boggs, MD, MBA, Director of the OR and Chief of the Anesthesia Service at the James J. Peters VA Medical Center in Bronx, NY as well as Associate Professor of Anesthesiology at The Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai in Manhattan, NY. One of Dr. Boggs’s areas of particular interest is GI sedation. For the past several years, Dr. Boggs has been working closely with endoscopists at Mount Sinai in New York and elsewhere, evaluating turnover time and safety metrics. He will be presenting at The ANESTHESIOLOGY™ 2014 annual meeting in New Orleans with a Point-Counterpoint session on Monday, October 13th and on a panel Tuesday, October 14th, and he gives us a detailed preview of his arguments in Computer-Assisted Personalized Sedation (CAPS): Will It Change the Way Moderate Sedation is Administered? ABC was pleased to have the opportunity to provide Dr. Boggs with claims data showing that the cost of anesthesia and anesthesia providers may be quite competitive with cost of CAPS.
