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.) While my wanderings didn’t take me as far afield as Dr. Jayne has lately been, it was definitely nice to get away. I hope, dear readers, that you get a chance to relax in your favorite locale with your favorite people during the upcoming holiday breaks!

Research and Innovation


New research from MGMA reveals that the more things (attempt) to change, the more they stay the same – at least when it comes to regulatory burdens: Over 90% of surveyed physicians believe such burdens have increased over the last year, and – not surprisingly – that reducing those burdens would better enable physicians to care for patients. Top burdens, which small-practice respondents say they can’t afford to outsource, include prior authorization, audits and appeals, and MIPS.
