Like most of you, Dr. Stratford strongly believes that empowering patients is beneficial and rewarding as being a physician. Despite all of the things he is not grateful for in the evolution of healthcare reform, he has seen the benefits of increased patient empowerment brought about through Meaningful Use Requirements.
Dr. Stratford believes that all physicians can find a way to participate in public health through committees, by guiding businesses to affiliate with public health issues, and through example by living healthy lives.
Technology has transformed a physician‘s ability to discover, diagnose and treat their patients. However, with great advancements come great responsibility.
In Dr. Stratford's first editorial of the year, he formally takes the reins from Dr. Miriam Anand, 2014 President, and describes his vision to keep MCMS moving in a forward, positive direction.
