NLDC Region 1 Candidate: Scott R. Avery, MD

Scott R. Avery, MD

Specialty: OB/GYN

Practice: Greenville Ob/Gyn, Greenville, NC

Type of practice: Independent practice

Medical School: University of Oklahoma

Why I am seeking this position: In a time of rapid change, providers need thoughtful leadership. Our profession in many ways remains as it always has been, but paradigms for practice structure, management and reimbursement have changed. These changes will accelerate as time passes. As a partner in a large multispecialty group, membership on this committee has introduced me to the North Carolina Medical Society and allowed me to see the importance of the Society’s work. I ask to be able to serve on this committee for another two (2) year term.

The top three issues facing physicians and PAs in North Carolina today are: 1) Administrative burden of EMR and coding documentation requirements. 2) Increasing coordination between insurers, health care systems, and government to steer patient treatment. 3) Continued liability issues.
