Berks County Medical Society Medical Record Spring_2018 - 7

In addition to these aforementioned continuing programs, I am
pleased to announce that the BCMS is currently developing a new
program as part of our mission to promote physician advocacy. As
highlighted in this edition of the Medical Record, a growing concern
in health care is physician dissatisfaction and burnout. Now more
than ever, it is difficult for doctors to "unplug" from their work.
Increasing regulatory pressures, 7-day work weeks, in-baskets, and
electronic health record tasks, to name only a few stressors, are
taking a toll on the physical and mental health of our providers.
Fortunately, this issue has not gone unnoticed and assistance is
available. Physician wellness programs are provided through the
Pennsylvania Medical Society Foundation, local health systems, and
institutions such as the AMA. However, the BCMS may be uniquely
suited to offer additional support for reducing physician burnout
and promote wellness for our local providers. Understandably, local
physicians may be hesitant to seek such services from their respective
employer health system. In partnering with county and regional
counseling services, and with the support of the Pennsylvania
Medical Society, the BCMS hopes to initiate a new network. This
network plans to incorporate 24-hour support services with qualified
counselors via phone and multi-media based platforms with the
ability to schedule personal counseling sessions with established

support services in the tri-county area for physicians who request
this care. Certainly, a goal of the program is to preserve anonymity
and protect the reputation of our physicians. In addition, I want to
recognize the efforts of our Executive Director TJ Huckleberry and
project developer Melissa Bertolet for their on-going work in making
this concept a reality. We look forward to this program in the Fall of
2018.
In closing, I believe I can safely speak for all of us when I say
it's time for some warmer, brighter days. We deserve it. With the
blooming of spring flowers and lifting spirits, I look forward to the
days ahead. For the Berks County Medical Society, I believe Spring
2018 will be a tremendous season of exciting events and growth
of our own. I hope our society will welcome new members and
continue to demonstrate our relevance to our existing membership.
As always, words cannot express my gratitude for the commitment
and on-going efforts of our society leadership. Without their hard
work, none of these events and programs would be possible. As
I start my second term as president of BCMS, I look forward to
working with the leadership and physician members of our Berks
County Medical Society as we promote and preserve the tradition of
medicine.
