Private Practice Consortium – Recap and Resources

More than 100 physicians and office managers filled the Golden State Ballroom at the DoubleTree Hotel in downtown Los Angeles on Saturday, July 15 to attend the Saving Private Practice Consortium. LACMA CEO, Gustavo Friederichsen, welcomed the attendees. Congresswoman Judy Chu spoke about pressing healthcare issues. There was rapt attention paid as Chu encouraged physicians to continue to come forward and make their voices heard.

Attendees spent the rest of the day moving between breakout and individual sessions to gather information and advice on issues doctors in private practice are facing. Reimbursement was a hot topic as were billing and coding. The breakout session “Optimizing Reimbursements While Enhancing Patient Care” was filled to standing room only. The brainstorming session “Digital Marketing” at the end of the day was also extremely popular.

Experts were on hand all day to talk with physicians about specific pain points, answer questions and strategize around common issues, from technology to finance to practice management and more. Physicians had the chance to tell their stories, work on resolving key issues and connect with other doctors. One young cardiologist found himself deep in discussion about dealing with the occasionally dysfunctional politics that can come when working with a team and how important good management is in providing optimal care.

The philosophy of unity was felt throughout the day as LACMA partners and experts met and shared stories around the struggles doctors deal with on a daily basis. They shared ideas on ways to work collaboratively to provide physicians with key services.


Now the real work begins. It is important that physicians and medical staff receive the service, support and guidance that so many experienced at the  Consortium.

Through LACMA, physicians have an entire team of industry experts available to help them personally and professionally. The Consortium was simply one day for you to get to know our partners and understand the power of membership.

Remember, as a member of LACMA, physicians are also members of CMA, and have access to not only a trusted portfolio of preferred partners, but a host of additional benefits, like access to legal resources, jury duty assistance, education programs (in-person and digital), office manager trainings, networking events, leadership opportunities, and much more.  Additionally, members can take comfort knowing that there is a powerful professional staff protecting private practice from legal, legislative, and regulatory intrusions.
