During the current financial crisis, managing a neurology practice has become increasingly challenging. Every day, practice managers face declining reimbursement, increasing numbers of uninsured patients, participation in Pay-for-Performance programs and e-Prescribing, and the demands of moving to electronic medical records.
This is where Business and Research Administrators in Neurology Society (BRAINS) and the American Academy of Neurology come in. Joining the AAN and BRAINS provides you with the tools and contacts to help you successfully manage your practice during this difficult time. Membership is a bargain: just $205 annually.
BRAINS member benefits include:
BRAINS members serve as faculty at the BRAINS Colloquium, which will be held at the AAN Annual Meeting in Seattle on April 25, 2009, and at AAN regional meetings. They speak on topics such as management of human resource functions, implementation of electronic medical records, compliance issues, improving collections, and management of clinical trials.
BRAINS members serve on several important AAN committees, including the Practice Committee, the Medical Economics and Management Committee, and its Coding and Practice Management & Technology Subcommittees.
Please consider joining AAN and BRAINS now, more than ever!
