Getting patients past their fears of medical tests and technology is a passion for Laurie Sullivan and the care team at Midwest Open MRI in Madison, a designated QualityPath® provider.
The opioid epidemic is everywhere. It’s in the news, in your community, in your workplace and perhaps in your family. It’s likely that you know someone who has used opioids. In fact, many people who later become addicted have their first experience with an opioid prescribed by a physician to treat severe pain.
When patients visit us and their doctor doesn’t prescribe an antibiotic, I tell them it’s likely a well thought-out decision. It might not be the one they want to hear, but we’re not doing it to push the patient’s care under the rug. We know what we’re doing.
Mark your calendars to attend Making Health Care More Affordable: The Intersection of Quality and Cost, on April 17 at Monona Terrace in Madison, WI.
The Alliance held a multi-stakeholder event to discuss the impact of obesity and how employers can support their employees in reducing the obesity epidemic in America. More than 55 people attended this event. Attendees heard speakers from a variety of different viewpoints on obesity. These viewpoints included national prevention, lifestyle, nutrition, patient, physician engagement, surgical and pharmaceutical.
It feels like we’re springing forward (please pardon the pun) at The Alliance. Whether you’re an employer, a broker or a third party administrator (TPA), here’s where you can expect us to bloom in the months ahead.
