We know the challenges you face today are greater than ever. Through the Practice Evolution education series, the Colorado Medical Society strives to help physicians better understand the interconnection of major issues in health care and better thrive in delivery system models by providing you trusted, neutral and dependable information and tools to help you navigate this ever-changing environment.
The four Practice Evolution categories are payment reform, practice redesign, transparency and administrative simplification. Within these categories, we provide resources critical to your practice’s success today and in the future. We recommend you begin by reading the Practice Evolution Reality Check, a scan of the health care environment in Colorado and across the country, complete with useful advice and links. Your component medical societies offer additional resources relevant to their local areas, and we encourage you to go to their websites to explore their offerings as well.
