HIStalk Practice Announcements and Requests
I’m playing catch up this Thanksgiving week after having travelled to two different beaches in two different countries over the last week or so. (Road warriors, I just don’t know how you do it.)

Top burdens, which small-practice respondents say they can’t afford to outsource, include prior authorization, audits and appeals, and MIPS.
