ANN ARBOR, Mich., May 18, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Medical Advantage Group is proud to sponsor the Ohio Orthopaedic Society's (OOS) 2016 Annual Meeting, an event that includes guest lecturers, the release of scientific papers by OOS members, and discussions about the latest state and federal healthcare issues that will affect the orthopaedists across the state of Ohio. The event takes place at the Columbus Marriott Northwest, Dublin OH, May 19 and 20.
"We're proud to play an active role in this year's Annual Meeting," said Paul MacLellan, CEO of Medical Advantage Group. "As our industry transforms to a fee-for-value model, there are many challenges and obstacles for physicians – including those practicing orthopaedic care. We're excited to share our insights and best practices with Ohio's care providers during the meeting."
Medical Advantage Group manages CIPA, the Consortium of Independent Physician Organizations, which consists of a network of 40 physician organizations representing 1,200 physicians throughout Michigan – who are dedicated to the practice of independent medicine. Members include individual practices, group practices, rural health clinics, Federally Qualified Health Centers, and physician hospital organizations.
