To endure the challenging and constantly evolving medical environment, we as physicians urgently need—now more than ever before—to connect and stay connected to each other. Your Colorado Medical Society provides this unity while also providing the tools to help your bottom line, help you navigate new quality and reporting requirements, and help you transform your practice to increase your career satisfaction.
Representing more than 7,500 Colorado physicians, CMS is the only group in the state solely speaking on your behalf in the legislature, the courtroom, and the boardroom. We provide an array of member benefits, including aggressively advocating for physicians at both the state and national levels, building strong physician leaders, providing physicians with everyday practice support and discounts, advocating for effective patient care, and providing legal guidance and support.
Our advocacy is broader than just political advocacy; we are your voice in the public policy arena with regulators, the media, health plans and the broader patient community. We continue to push an agenda that’s focused on benefitting you professionally, while also working to improve the health and wellness of your patients.
Here are just a few examples of what we’ve accomplished in the last year:
Helping your bottom line
CMS’ Member Benefits program provides members access to value-added products and services as well as discounts on automobile purchases, liability insurance, financial services, medical practice supplies, and other offerings.
CMS is a member-driven organization, reaching out often to gauge your concerns and gather your input. We rely on your participation to set our course and guide our direction and we value the volunteers who comprise our 10 councils, committees, and workgroups.
We also provide training through the Advanced Physician Leadership Program, a yearlong program that focuses on leadership, collaboration, teamwork, systems thinking and emotional intelligence in the context of health care delivery.
Improving the practice environment and patient care
CMS understands that many physicians are struggling to keep your doors open in unpredictable markets or struggling to understand how the changing payment models will affect your bottom line. As public reporting on the quality and cost of care becomes commonplace, we are here to help you maintain your reputation, ensure a financially strong practice and improve the care and relationships with your patients by providing the answers, advice and tools you need to excel in big data health care.
At the AMA interim meeting in November 2012, CMS passed a resolution to address administrative complexities, recommending simplification of all actions required for transactions between payers and providers including standardizing the claims revenues process.
We are looking out for you and your interests as commercial insurance companies, mega-hospital systems and federal and state governments push to shape and change Colorado health care. You can count on us to provide you with the trusted resources, expert advice and cutting-edge information you need for a thriving practice.
From boardrooms to community rooms to the Capitol steps, we fight for you and your patients every day. With physicians by physicians and for physicians—the Colorado Medical Society is here for you. Join today. Click here to fill out our online application.
