And that's the last of my coverage of RBMA's 2010 Fall Educational Conference. I write to you now from the Austin airport, where I'm getting ready to bid Texas a very fond farewell . . . that is, as soon as I get a turkey sandwich from Schlotzky's. (I guess I'm not quite ready to leave all this amazing food behind.) If you were in attendance at this year's RBMA conference, any thoughts? My primary impression was that the gloves have come off. From Dr. Muroff's reality check on what great groups do right (key quote: "The ultimate way of dealing with people is termination") to Ken Davis, Jr's advice for groups navigating the latest spate of legal issues ("Shift the responsibility now"), radiology doesn't seem to be playing Mr. Nice Specialty anymore--nor should it when under siege. I hope you all learned something helpful to guide your business through the tough times to come. Leave a comment and let me know what you took from this year's conference, and if you have a question about any of our coverage, send me an e-mail at cvasko (at) imagingbiz (dot) com and I'll do my best to find you the answer.
And now for that sandwich!
