We had over 300 physicians complete a survey
and will be focusing our efforts on three areas with
an advisory group of OSMA members formed for
each area:



  1. Pain Management and Opiate Prescribing – assessing current challenges with OARRS, EHRs and insurance coverage and working with regulators and payers on solutions

  2. Continuing to address prior authorization – challenges at the state and federal level

  3. Removing barriers, partnering and highlighting best practices – in managing patients with diabetes, smoking cessation and access to care.


Please consider serving in an advisory role for any of these initiatives.
