Aug. 24, 2016

Dr. Sarah Streett introduces a new set of articles to help your practice of GI and patient care.

Chair, AGA Institute Practice Management and Economics Committee

There are aspects of the practice of medicine today that feel like a carnival shooting game. Our aims are focused on the task of hitting the mark for our patients, nailing the diagnosis and restoring health. But making successful contact with our patients, the moving targets, is becoming more complicated. There are the distractions of new technologies, and the rules that are required to win, by successful outcome evaluation and reimbursement, are changing all the time. 

Rather than feeling like the game is rigged against us, AGA hopes to help us embrace our competitive spirits and win the big stuffed animal.
