I suggest joining the American College of Physician Advisors (ACPAdvisors. org). The other organization that's very helpful is the American Board of Quality Assurance and Utilization Review Physicians (ABQA u RP.org). There are some conferences each year that I think are helpful. There is also a physician adviser boot camp held yearly. ABQA u RP holds an annual conference as well. It's about combining the clinical knowledge from practicing medicine for a number of years and learning to understand the utilization rules given by insurance companies and Medicare. Then, the physician adviser needs to be able to teach the medical staff and finance department the ins and outs of the rules to maximize quality and the reimbursement received by using hospital services efficiently and billing correctly. Anything else? It's definitely a field that's expanding and growing. There are physician advisers now in different fields of administrative medicine. It's not just utilization, but it's also quality, informatics, coding and documentation. Physician advisers are key to successful organizations. Physician advisers bridge the gap between hospit a l a d m i n i st rat ion a nd clinical medicine. Win! Find your next practice— and enter to win a $500 gift card— at PracticeLink.com/Win.
