Bruce Maller, President and CEO of BSM Consulting, and our talented OOSS Symposium panelists take on the most challenging issues of the day in our second audio capture from 2015 OOSS Symposium at AAO Las Vegas: “Positioning for the Opportunities of Change.”
In his keynote address before the panel discussion, Maller explores what ophthalmic ASCs must do to thrive in an environment affected by Medicaid expansion, growth in Medicare Part C, burgeoning ACOs, and other legislative and market forces. Always pragmatic, relevant, and engaging, Maller dissects the challenges and opportunities presented by market consolidation among payers and providers and drills down to look at the pros and cons of aligning with financial and strategic partners.
Panelists Stephanie Harvey, MBA, CASA, and Tom Harvey, M.D., of the Independent Surgery Center, Chippewa Falls, WI; Robert Nelson, PA-C, Executive Director, Island Eye Surgicenter, Carle place, NY; Lee H. Novick, M.D., Newport Bay Surgery Center, Newport Beach, CA; and Maria Scott, M.D., Chesapeake Eye Care & Laser Center, Annapolis, MD, share their perspectives and solutions, followed by an audience Q&A.
