House of Delegates (HOD)
In 2022, based on a census of ASCRS members who are also members of the AMA, ASCRS was awarded a second Delegate and Alternate Delegate to the AMA House of Delegates. Delegate and Alternate Delegate Drs. Harry Papaconstantinou and Ronald Gagliano announced their intention to resign effective EOY 2022, after 10 years of service to ASCRS and after offering to participate in orientation for the new Delegates and Alternate Delegates. A subcommittee of the Healthcare Economics Committee (HEC) received interest in the delegate positions from several members. Ultimately Drs. Anne Mongiu and Juan (Lucas) Poggio were selected as delegates, and Drs. Paul Johnson and Sachin Vaid were selected as alternates. The delegates will serve for three years.
Current Procedural Terminology (CPT)
In September 2022, Dr. William Harb, who served as Advisor to the AMA CPT Advisory Committee, offered his resignation. The HEC followed a similar process for a replacement, naming Dr. Eric Weiss as Advisor and Dr. Joshua Eberhardt as Alternate Advisor. Dr. Weiss has served ASCRS in the role in the past.
RVS Update Committee (RUC)
In May 2022, Dr. Guy Orangio, ASCRS Past President and RUC Advisor, indicated his interest in stepping down after many years of service. As with the HOD and CPT reps, the HEC invited applicants, and selected Dr. Kelly Tyler to replace Dr. Orangio as RUC Advisor. Dr. Tyler joins Dr. Stephen Sentovich, Alternate Advisor, on the RUC.
While in their roles, AMA Delegates and Advisors and their alternates serve as members of the ASCRS Healthcare Economics Committee
