ASPR Annual Conference Sneak Peek: Connecting the Dots of Healthcare
Registration is now open for the 2013 ASPR Annual Conference! Here is a sneak peek at one of the keynote sessions. The 2013 ASPR Annual Conference will feature Keynote Speaker M. Tray Dunaway, MD, FACS, CSP, who will present Connecting the Dots of Healthcare: Better Healthcare through Mutuality.
We all work in an increasingly complex matrix creating an ecosystem of healthcare. Decisions and actions by any individual, group, or organization of these “dots of healthcare” affect the entire ecosystem composed of other “dots.” Using principal foundational elements, Dr. Dunaway weaves a program to help cope with future changes and not just survive, but thrive. He will focus on a few key elements and contributions that physician recruitment can make to illustrate that we are all in a complex network of interconnectivity and our ultimate solutions to challenges come from this network.
This award-winning, powerful physician speaker will share his secrets of success to connect “the dots of healthcare” in more meaningful ways with humor, honesty, and surprising insights from a physician’s perspective. Don’t miss this presentation that has garnered rave reviews from healthcare audiences, will leave you in stitches, and will touch your mind as well as your heart.
Tray Dunaway is a world-class medical record delinquent and practiced as an every-other-night-on-call general surgeon in Camden, SC, where he endured 17 years of having his staff telling him, “stop talking to the patients and hurry up so we can go home.” He finally figured out a way to actually get paid for speaking and now no longer has to get out of bed in the middle of the night to go to the OR. Dr. Dunaway created a business solution for physicians, PAs and nurse practitioners when he simplified and streamlined E&M coding and, in the process of keeping clinicians out of compliance jail, discovered how to connect physicians, hospitals, patients, and all the “dots” of healthcare in more meaningful and mutually beneficial relationships.
Don’t miss out on this session and many more like it! Reserve your seat at the 2013 ASPR Annual Conference held August 10-14 at the JW Marriott Starr Pass Resort and Spa in Tucson, Arizona.
Register by July 17 for early bird discounts!

JASPR Feature: Taking the Fear Out of Tracking
Taking the fear out of tracking: Keeping it simple
By Shelley Tudor, FASPR and Lynne Peterson, FASPR
In our fast-paced, changing healthcare landscape, in-house physician recruitment professionals are relied on more and more for their knowledge and expertise in attracting, hiring and retaining the right physician or healthcare provider for the job. Whether you’re recruiting for a small hospital or a statewide multi-facility health system, your responsibility is much the same: Assessing recruitment needs; sourcing for candidates; conducting phone screenings; hosting site visits; tracking data.
Tracking data? Who can afford to spend valuable time on that? The simple answer is that you can’t afford not to. Tracking your recruitment data is well worth the time and effort, and the good news is that it doesn’t have to take much effort at all.

Board of Directors Elections Coming Up in June
The ASPR Board of Directors elections will open on June 4. This year we will elect the President Elect, Treasurer and three Members at Large. The Members at Large positions that are up for election are the newly defined Vice President of Education, Vice President of Engagement, and the Vice President of Research. The terms for these positions will begin in August 2013 and end in May 2015. The reason for the term ending in May 2015 is due to the transition of the ASPR Annual Conference from August to May that year. The official transition of Board Members occurs at the ASPR Annual Business Meeting which is held at the Annual Conference.
Candidate bios will be made available and online voting will occur via the ASPR website between June 4 and June 18, 2013. You will need your ASPR username and password in order to cast your vote.
