Jerry Penso, M.D., M.B.A
President and Chief Executive Officer, AMGA
Welcome to the CEO Corner, where I share observations, articles,
and photos to connect and engage with our members and the larger
AMGA has been quite active in 2019, bringing valuable public policy advocacy, educational opportunities, and innovative programs to our members. With control of the House of Representatives changing hands this year, AMGA's public policy team has been hard at work solidifying relationships with key congressional leaders. AMGA Foundation extended its successful Diabetes: Together 2 Goal campaign for two additional years, to improve care quality for even more patients. AMGA Analytics launched its new Collaborative for Performance ExcellenceSM which focuses on total cost of care, practice efficiency, high-risk patients, and service quality. Our 2019 Annual Conference and 2019 Institute for Quality Leadership provided excellent peer-to-peer learning opportunities to advance our member's organizational performance.
With 2020 right around the corner, I urge you to consider participating in AMGA’s programs, conferences, leadership councils, webinars, and quality improvement collaboratives in the coming year. We need you to contribute your ideas and help us create the solutions you need. AMGA is dedicated to your success, and I am confident that together we will transform health care and make our model of care pre-eminent in the nation.
I’d love to hear from you – your thoughts, successes, and challenges. Drop me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
