How Does Orange County Medical Society Membership Benefit Physicians?
Orange County Medical Society works in conjunction with the FMA and AMA to inform Legislators at the state and national level on key legislative issues that impact physicians and their patients.
Socializing with colleagues and their spouses is encouraged through various social events scheduled in cooperation with the medical school, hospital residency programs and the OCMS Alliance.
When the Orange County Medical Society office receives calls from patients who experience a breakdown of communication with their physician or the office staff, OCMS makes every effort to restore the channels of communication.
Category I CME events are offered throughout the year, often in conjunction with quarterly membership dinner meetings.
- Grassroots Activity
Orange County Medical Society functions as a grassroots organization to help promote the legislative agenda of the Florida Medical Association and the American Medical Association.
Weekly informational bulletins are sent via fax and email on relevant legislative, regulatory and healthcare related issues that affect medical practices.
- Practice Management
Frequent educational luncheons are offered to office managers at which experts will present information on reimbursement, collections, medical law, Medicare updates, risk management, and more.
Each year the Orange County Medical Society makes approximately 200 referrals to area physicians. Our referrals are limited to OCMS physician members. The Medical Society provides the public with information about member physicians' medical backgrounds and board certifications.
Contact information for the offices and specialties of member physicians are listed on the Orange County Medical Society website.
- OrangePAC (Orange Political Action Committee)
OrangePAC is a voluntary contribution of $50 that supports pro-medicine candidates running for State office.
