Anesthesia Business Consultants’ Fall 2018 Issue of Communiqué—Current News for the Anesthesia Specialty—Available Now

October 9, 2018

JACKSON, Mich.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Oct 9, 2018--Anesthesia Business Consultants (ABC), a leading provider in billing and practice management for the anesthesia and pain management specialty, is pleased to announce that the Fall 2018 issue of its quarterly newsletter, , is now available.

Communiqué is a publication dedicated to bringing practical and tangible articles and advice, specific to the anesthesia and pain management community. Communiqué features articles focusing on the latest hot topics for anesthesiologists, nurse anesthetists, pain management specialists and anesthesia practice administrators. ABC offers Communiqué electronically as well as in hard copy, both on a complimentary basis.

Tony Mira, President & CEO explains, “The fall issue continues our tradition of providing valuable information, provided by industry leaders. In this issue we explore what constitutes strength in the market; service levels or scale. And to further that discussion, we investigate the potential parallels between recent findings regarding health system consolidation and the consolidation taking place within anesthesia.”

ABC Vice President Jody Locke, MA, touches on that in this issue in “What Is the Future of Private Anesthesia Practice?” when he writes: “To the extent that larger entities can provide a better product cheaper, the consolidation will continue. The real question, though, is when is big too big? Is there a tipping point?” Mr. Locke contends that smaller, nimbler private practices attuned to their customers’ (facilities’) needs will remain poised to compete.

Achieving and maintaining that viability in a market as volatile as the current one demands attention to an unnerving array of strategic and business concerns. To help group practice leaders organize their thinking along these lines, Mark F. Weiss, JD, of the Mark F. Weiss Law Firm offers . . . questions. A lot of questions. And no answers. Only questions. His list of questions is comprehensive, thought-provoking, and bound to trigger constructive action is the timely “A Self-Diagnostic for High-Performing Anesthesia Group Leaders.”
