What’s Happening

This Year’s Laureate: Dr. Ryan

The Board of Trustees of the Academy is proud to announce the selection of Stephen J. Ryan, MD, as the recipient of the Laureate Recognition Award for 2012.

August 2012 Notebook 1
Laureate of the American Academy of Ophthalmology: Stephen J. Ryan, MD.
The Laureate Recognition Award honors physicians who have made the most significant contributions to ophthalmology leading to the prevention of blindness and restoration of sight worldwide.

Dr. Ryan is recognized for his valuable and innumerable contributions to the field of vitreoretinal disease and ocular trauma; Dr. Ryan’s key leadership impact in major national and international organizations has reshaped not only ophthalmology but the entire field of medicine. He has written almost 300 peer-reviewed papers. His three-volume text Retina is a classic in the field. Dr. Ryan has had over 30 years of continuous National Eye Institute (NEI) grant support, and his scientific accomplishments make him one of the few active ophthalmology members in the Institute of Medicine. From 1982 to 1985, he was a member of the National Institutes of Health (NIH) National Advisory Eye Council (NAEC) and subsequently chaired the Retina Panel for the NAEC. 

Dr. Ryan is President of the Doheny Eye Institute and the Grace and Emery Beardsley Professor of Ophthalmology. Previously, he was Dean of the Keck School of Medicine and Senior Vice President for Medical Care of the University of Southern California. He is a member of numerous ophthalmologic organizations and has served as president of several, including the Association of University Professors of Ophthalmology and the Macula Society. He is the founding President of the National Alliance for Eye and Vision Research (NAEVR). Currently, Dr. Ryan is in his second four-year term as the Home Secretary of the Institute of Medicine and serves on the Board of the International Council of Ophthalmology.

In recognition of Dr. Ryan’s contributions to the field of and profession of ophthalmology, the Academy is honored to recognize him as the 2012 Laureate.

Be sure to read EyeNet’s interview with Dr. Ryan in the Sunday/Monday/Tuesday edition of Academy News. The Academy’s convention tabloid will be available throughout the McCormick Place convention center during this year’s Joint Meeting.

First Congressional Tele–Town Hall Takes Place

In June, the Academy began a series of congressional tele–town hall meetings in order to provide members with a new venue to discuss key issues with legislative leaders. The meetings present members with an opportunity to speak directly with legislators to enhance the Academy’s advocacy efforts on behalf of ophthalmologists and patients. They will engage with members of Congress on issues that include Medicare payment reform and Academy-backed truth-in-advertising legislation.

The inaugural session, which took place on June 11, featured Rep. Nan Hayworth, MD (R-N.Y.). The congresswoman and ophthalmologist was a member of the joint House and Senate committee that was formed to negotiate a final agreement on the Middle Class Tax Relief and Job Creation Act, which delayed a 27 percent cut in Medicare physician pay through the end of the year. Rep. Hayworth discussed the likelihood of repealing the sustainable growth rate formula used to calculate Medicare physician pay, and the outlook for the health care reform law. She also discussed the role of physician legislators in Congress and her participation in the House doctor caucus, which advances issues of importance to physicians.

Update on ECA

In 2010, EyeCare America (ECA) moved to a web-based referral system. People with Internet access can use the Online Referral Center to learn whether they qualify for an eye exam—and up to one year of eye care—at no cost to them. But many people in need do not have the necessary online access to determine eligibility.

Fortunately, ECA’s online service allows anyone with a computer to help those in need by keying in information on their behalf. In the last two years, more than 1,700 individuals and ECA partners, including national organizations, senior centers, and clinics, have used the ECA website to help their clients, family, and friends see if they qualify.

New video. ECA recently posted a video for its partners showing how to help those in need of eye care and how to use the Partner Reporting Tool. This tool generates reports for partners with the number of people referred to ECA, how many of those were seen, and a list of diseases that were diagnosed.

How to help. If you are not already an ECA volunteer-ophthalmologist, please call ECA staff at 877- 887-6327 or visit eyecareamerica.org and click the “How to Help” tab.

If you know of organizations that may be interested in partnering with ECA, please refer them to the ECA website to watch this new video.

This Month in Ophthalmic History

Yellow fever is a particularly deadly virus with a long history in the United States. By one count, yellow fever was America’s most prevalent epidemic between 1650 and 1918, followed by cholera, measles, and influenza. In its final stage, “yellow jack,” as it was sometimes called, caused fever; jaundice; bleeding from mouth, nose, and even eyes; seizures; and liver and kidney failure. Finding the cure for yellow fever required discovering its cause, and for this we can thank a Cuban ophthalmologist named Carlos Juan Finlay, MD (1833-1915). Dr. Finlay theorized that the mosquito was the vector for the disease and published his findings on Aug. 14, 1881. Twenty years later, Walter Reed, MD, and his commission confirmed these findings, and precautions were then implemented during the construction of the Panama Canal. U.S. General Leonard Wood noted, “The confirmation of Dr. Finlay’s doctrine is the greatest step forward made in medical science since [Edward] Jenner’s discovery of vaccination.”

D.C. Report

Medicare Physician Payment Reform

Members of Congress intend to direct more money to primary care and provide strong incentives to move from the traditional Medicare fee-for-service program, but there is much uncertainty related to physician payment. Congressional leaders are developing long-term solutions to Medicare physician payment, but Congress is unlikely to act until after the November elections. While legislators debate options to replace the fee-for-service program with one that rewards quality care and better patient outcomes, they are likely to defer to the next Congress to pass major payment reforms. The Academy has provided examples of effective, physician-led quality efforts to legislators as they consider alternative Medicare payment programs.

One bipartisan bill, introduced by Reps. Alyson Schwartz (D-Pa.) and Joe Heck, DO (R-Nev.), would repeal a 27 percent Medicare physician pay cut caused by the sustainable growth rate formula (SGR) on Jan. 1, and provide positive updates to physicians (2.5 percent for office-based physicians and 0.5 percent to all others) who transition to a new payment system. The Schwartz/Heck bill requires the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Innovation (CMMI) to approve a minimum of four new payment options by 2016. Unfortunately, CMMI is only testing primary care services and hospital-based surgery initiatives, such as accountable care organizations and bundling related payments for hip and open-heart surgeries. The CMMI options could leave ophthalmologists without an opportunity to participate in the new system. Physicians who do not transition to new models would, starting in 2018, see 14 percent in cuts over the next four years. Although Reps. Schwartz and Heck added a fee-for-service alternative as a result of Academy advocacy efforts, physicians would be required to participate in the Medicare Physician Quality Reporting System, e-prescribing, Maintenance of Competency, and electronic health record programs to avoid the 14 percent cut. The Academy believes this overly prescriptive approach could stifle innovation in physician-led quality and efficiency initiatives.

Another proposal, by surgeon Reps. Charles Boustany, MD (R-La.), and Tom Price, MD (R-Ga.), calls for a five-year SGR fix with medical economic index updates for all physicians, and it also provides a timeline for reform. Congress would be required to vote on a Medicare physician payment reform plan within 48 months of passage of the five-year fix. This legislation also would establish a patient-shared billing option, allowing patients and physicians to contract for items and services outside of the Medicare system without current penalties. In addition, the bill establishes a voluntary, gain-sharing program for nonsalaried physicians, who could receive incentive payments for reducing costs. This plan, however, leaves physicians with a 40 percent Medicare physician pay cut unless Congress passes a permanent SGR solution.

Alabama Academy Shows Its Media Savvy

“We make a concerted effort to utilize the Academy’s monthly EyeSmart resources to educate the public about ophthalmology,” said Warren A. Thompson, MD, president of the Alabama Academy of Ophthalmology (ALAO).

August 2012 Notebook 3
ALAO MEMBERS DISCUSS AMD CAMPAIGN. ALAO member Dr. E. Scott Parma (left) and retired member, Dr. Raz Raspberry (center) appeared with WSFA anchor Judd Davis (right) on Channel 12 in Montgomery, Ala., as part of the Academy's March AMD campaign.

“ALAO executive director Mike Merrill, JD, takes immediate action after the EyeSmart resources are provided. He has an excellent sense about how these efforts can benefit the ALAO and the public,” said Academy secretary for State Affairs Daniel J. Briceland, MD.

The ALAO’s participation in recent Academy campaigns, including the June Fireworks Eye Safety Campaign and the March AMD campaign, resulted in significant media attention, said Dr. Briceland. “After the May announcement of the EyeSmart resources for the fireworks campaign, Mike notified the Academy that he had arranged for himself and ALAO leadership to be featured on television in Montgomery, Ala., and had visual props lined up. Mike also instigated similar coverage for the March AMD campaign, lining up two television appearances for ALAO membership.”

Dr. Briceland continued, “The ALAO establishes itself to local media as a source of accurate and timely information on eye care. … We encourage other state societies to take note of Alabama’s effort in the media arena,” said Dr. Briceland. “This would benefit our patients and our state ophthalmology societies.”

People

Richard G. Shugarman, MD, was appointed to the Florida Board of Medicine by Gov. Rick Scott on June 8 (pending confirmation by the state senate). Dr. Shugarman owns RGS Medical Services in West Palm Beach and is a voluntary professor of ophthalmology at Bascom Palmer Eye Institute. Dr. Shugarman’s term with the Board of Medicine began on June 8, and will end Oct. 31, 2015.
