    Pain Docs Lobby for more Oversight of Independent Review Organizations

    Pain Docs Lobby for more Oversight of Independent Review Organizations

    Advocating for Transparency and Oversight in Pain Management
    Introduction:
    Welcome back to Painexam, where we delve into the latest advancements and challenges in pain management. Today's episode highlights a significant advocacy effort made by leading Interventional Pain Physicians and industry experts. Summary of Lobbying Effort:
    On March 20, 2024, a group of widely known and respected pain physicians and industry leaders, including Drs. Sean Li, Peter Staats, Mehul J. Desai, David Reece, Hemant Kalia, and David Rosenblum, alongside industry figures Mark Stultz, Christopher Conrad, and Cecelia Ruble, visited Capitol Hill to advocate for greater oversight and transparency in independent review organizations. Despite their busy schedules, they recognized the critical need to address the 0% turnover rate in appeals for denied treatments, which disproportionately affects patients seeking alternatives to surgery and opioid medication. Importance of Transparency:
    The issue extends beyond pain management, impacting patients across various medical fields. While opioid therapy may seem economically favorable initially, the long-term consequences, including delayed care and medication side effects, often outweigh the costs. The group emphasized the importance of an unbiased review for  accessible, cutting-edge treatments to improve patient outcomes and reduce overall healthcare expenses. Purpose of the Lobbying Effort:
    Contrary to pushing any specific company agenda, the initiative aims to highlight the challenges patients and physicians encounter in securing optimal treatment outcomes.

    Dr. David Rosenblum, a pioneer in interventional pain medicine, particularly in ultrasound-
    guided procedures and regenerative pain medicine, underscores the necessity of addressing these issues for the benefit of countless patients suffering from chronic pain.
    Conclusion and Actionable Steps:
    To schedule a consultation with Dr. Rosenblum, patients can visit www.AABPpain.com or contact the Brooklyn Office at 718-436-7246 or the Garden City Office at 516-482-7246. Stay tuned for more updates on advancements and advocacy efforts in pain management. Outro:
