The Organized Medical Staff Section (OMSS) met virtually on Saturday, June 5.
The OMSS Assembly considered one resolution and conducted a thorough review of the items of business before the House of Delegates, prompting robust discussion on notable issues such as:
- Placing a moratorium on prior authorization requirements for prescription drugs
- Protecting hospitals and health records against ransomware attacks
OMSS remembered Larry Monahan, MD, a longtime OMSS member and former governing council member who passed away from COVID. A memorial resolution in Dr. Monahan’s honor has been transmitted to the AMA House of Delegates for consideration at the June 2021 Special Meeting.
The section also offers a special “thank you” to David Welsh, MD, who will roll of the governing council following this meeting. Thank you for your service!
