Thomas Smyth, M.D. Plays Integral Part on MedChi's Blue Ribbon Commission - As the nation’s and the state’s healthcare systems continue to evolve, the critical role of the physician in future healthcare delivery systems is being examined by a group of 14 commissioners chosen to be a part of MedChi’s Blue Ribbon Commission. Dr. Smyth is one of the commissioners leading the development of key state legislative strategies that will allow physicians to continue to play a critical leadership role, as well as preserve physician value in the future delivery of healthcare to the citizens of Maryland.  The MedChi House of Delegates formed the commission in September 2013 with a goal of helping physicians prepare for the changing landscape of healthcare in Maryland. In September 2015, this commission will submit a report to the House of Delegates on its findings that support the physician’s critical contributions to the healthcare system.

Jonathan Rubenstein, M.D. was recognized by the president of the American Urological Association (AUA) for his continued work on the ICD Coordination and Maintainance Committee on behalf of the AUA for ICD-10-CM. ICD-10-CM is a coding system used to categorize patients' illnesses and injuries and the treatment they receive in American hospitals.
