Posted on: 26 Jul 17

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 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 of Anesthesia Business Consultants, explains, “In this issue of Communiqué we explore trends in the business structure of anesthesia and pain management. How do we know we are choosing the right path when faced with difficult choices and turbulent times? What should we do when presented with an RFP? We look to these, and other issues, in our Summer edition, out now.”

Furthering our thoughts on the future of anesthesiology is Strategy and Adaptability in a Competitive Market:Lessons from the Nation’s Largest Anesthesia Organizations. Authors Howard Greenfield, MD, Co-Founder and Principal of Enhance Healthcare Consulting, along with ABC’s own Jody Locke, MA, Vice President of Anesthesia and Pain Practice Management Services, offer the reader lessons learned from the recent spate of acquisitions in anesthesia and pain management. They also discuss the complexities of expansion and provide real-life examples of growth and acquisition in the industry.

Also guiding readers through the murky future is author Mark Weiss, JD, whose article, Hospital CEO Turnover:What You Must Know and Do to Protect your Anesthesia Group, cautions the reader with various scenarios that a change of C-Suite leadership could precipitate. An American College of Healthcare Executives survey showing a 2016 turnover rate of 18 percent among hospital CEOs underscores the need to have contractual promises from the current CEO in writing, Weiss notes.
