Orthopaedic Market Communications
COA


Coming up at the Combined AOA and COA Annual Meeting, a new web site will launch, providing a service to answer the ever growing complexity and demands our community faces in this information driven era of health care.

Those of us who have been around for a few years, we've all seen it: the leadership and influence our specialty once enjoyed guiding hospital resource management and industry collaboration has steadily been eroded. To remain relevant in these conversations, we need to be equipped with the right information, or risk falling further behind on the curve.

For an individual surgeon with a busy practice, this would be an overwhelming task, but as a Community, we have the expertise and the knowledge, and now we will have the medium to share it.



Stay tuned for further notice on how we can empower our specialty and be sure to visit our booth at the COA, #1013 in Montreal.

Scientists: Trust your doctor, not Wikipedia
BBC News
Wikipedia, the online encyclopaedia, contains errors in nine out of 10 of its health entries, and should be treated with caution, a study has said. Scientists in the US compared entries about conditions such as heart disease, lung cancer, depression and diabetes with peer-reviewed medical research. They said most articles in Wikipedia contained "many errors". Wikimedia UK, its British arm, said it was "crucial" that people with health concerns spoke to their GP first.

Survey: Communication breakdown between health benefit plan sponsors, providers
Canadian HR Reporter
Workplace health benefit plan sponsors are ill-equipped to develop strategic health benefit plans to respond to the future needs of employees, according to the 2014 edition of The Sanofi Canada Healthcare Survey. There appears to be a few problems in the communications between health benefit plan sponsors and providers. For one, only one-third (36 per cent) of sponsors said they regularly receive an analysis of claims data from their plan providers (insurance company or advisor) to better understand the use of their plan.
