Our Key Initiatives

Limiting Malpractice Claims: NYSSOS is working to limit malpractice claims, advocating for fair and just resolutions that protect your professional standing and create a more secure environment for all orthopaedic practitioners.

Prior Authorization Process Reform: Our Society is fighting for a streamlined prior authorization process, reducing administrative complexities and allowing you to focus more on patient care and less on paperwork.

Workers' Compensation Guidelines Your support helps us actively engage with regulators and legislators to influence and refine the Workers' Compensation system and guidelines, ensuring they align with the best interests of injured patients and orthopaedic surgeons throughout New York.

Driving Policy Reforms for a Safer Healthcare Environment:We are pursuing reforms aimed at creating a safer healthcare environment, protecting healthcare workers from violence. Your support is a vital force for positive transformation, ensuring the well-being and security of those dedicated to the care of others.
Clarity and Professional Recognition: NYSSOS is promoting initiatives that ensure the appropriate identification of healthcare professionals in one-on-one interactions with patients and in public advertisements. Together, let's uphold transparency and build trust in healthcare relationships.

Preventing Encroachment of Non-Physician Providers and Safeguarding Practice Standards:

Stand with us as we safeguard patients and prevent inappropriate scope expansions by non-physician practitioners.

Empowering Orthopaedic Advocacy for Aging Wellness: By renewing, you contribute to our collective efforts in shaping policies that actively reduce musculoskeletal diseases and ensure robust support for orthopaedic treatment tailored to the needs of our aging population.

Retention of the Orthopaedic Workforce: Our Society  provides professional development opportunities, and a robust community network that provides support throughout our member's careers.
