We foster and advance practice management for our members with information and education. We engage with policymakers to advocate for legislation and policies crucial to sustaining our members' practices and which provide physician-led, patient-centered, safe medical care. We drive change that is good for the overall success of anesthesiology as a discipline in the House of Medicine.
The new avalanche of administrative requirements with ICD10, MACRA, and every other acronym seems overwhelming if not depressing. It's a great feeling to discover that no anesthesiologist is alone in this modern world. Illinois has an amazing talent pool to meet any challenge. Being a member of ISA helps me feel good about being a physician these days.
