“Today, drivers such as rising costs, reform and demand for services continue to lead healthcare to be synonymous with change,” said Mr. Potts. “As such, anesthesia groups must embrace these changes and find ways to maintain their own competitive advantage in an increasingly competitive market.”  

Mr. Potts will be presenting to healthcare professionals including anesthesiologists, CRNAs, practice administrators, billing managers and professional coders on the topic, “Maintaining Viability in the Anesthesia Marketplace: Today and Beyond” during a breakout session on April 29 at 1:10 pm. The presentation will identify current and future trends in the anesthesia marketplace with emphasis on changing old habits of practice management, implementing alternative anesthesia delivery models and adding value to a practice’s anesthesia service offerings.

Mr. Potts is involved in many business development initiatives, implementation of new staffing strategies and also remains clinically active. Prior to joining NAPA, he worked for a large CRNA-owned group in Michigan, where he was responsible for the development and operations of the group’s small and rural hospital division.
