Dr. Fry delivered a lecture entitled “Healthcare Payment Reform: Surgeons Should Lead the Way” for the Zimmerman Lectureship during the annual meeting held on May 19th, 2011.

Dr. Fry discussed how surgical care, particularly elective surgical care, is one area of heath care that is easily amenable to changing payment methods. He presented the MPA GlobalPRIME model and described how surgeons and hospitals could work together to improve margins while providing cost effective care.
