Kansas Orthopaedic Society

The purpose of this Society is to unite the orthopaedic surgeons of Kansas by encouraging the science and art of orthopaedic surgery and promoting best musculoskeletal care for the people of the state. The Annual meeting of Kansas Orthopaedic Society will be held in September yearly. Steve Kearney of Kearney and Associates represents the Kansas Orthopaedic Society in the Kansas Legislature. Their National Orthopaedic Leadership Conference in Washington, DC provided good meetings with their legislators. They had four items on their agenda to discuss with the legislators. The first dealt with HR 4077, the Quality Health Care Coalition Act of 2014. This would keep health care professionals from federal antitrust trial in contractual negotiations with a health care plan. It would permit physicians to advocate on behalf of the patients in developing ACOs for example. The next topic was as usual, repeal of the flawed SGR: HR 4015, S 2000. We urged action by the end of this year but it doubtful there will be any action until after the elections. The third item was Athletic Access to Timely Health Care: HR3722, S 2220. This offers legal safety for sports authorities who travel to other states with an athletic team to deliver care. There is a lot of variability among states about who would be permitted to provide care in these situations .Finally, they cheered continued support and implementation of policies that progress and maintain access to necessary orthopaedic care. All their legislators understood these issues. Denise Lantz is the Executive Director Kansas Orthopaedic Society. National Orthopaedic Leadership Conference (NOLC) are organised annually by Kansas Orthopaedic Society. The physical educational links of Kansas Orthopaedic Society are The American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons, The Kansas Medical Society, and Kansas State Board of Healing Arts.
