A note from the Editor in Chief: We are pleased to present the next installment of A Day at the Office. In this column, private practice orthopaedic surgeon Douglas W. Lundy MD, MBA provides perspective on the pressures that orthopaedic surgeons face on a typical “day at the office,” as well as a broader viewpoint about trends in nonacademic clinical-care settings. This month, Dr. Lundy presents The MACRA-sized Headache, a two-part series. In part one, published in last month’s Clinical Orthopaedics and Related Research®, Dr. Lundy took readers inside his private practice as his group considered acquiring a new electronic medical records (EMR) system to comply with MACRA’s requirements. In part two, Dr. Lundy details how his group prepared for implementing a new EMR system, and how the changes impacted his private practice.
