INCOMING PRESIDENT'S MESSAGE:

Colleagues,
G

ood evening and thank you all for coming. I would like to
thank Dr. Harberger for his service as President this past year
and leading our York County Medical Society during a time of
change, growth, and achievement.

DANIEL HORNYAK, MD, MBA, CPE
President

The York County Medical Society has a long and proud history. Our
50-year award recipients, Dr. Dabb and Dr. Nicholson, are a testament to
the dedication of our physicians.
With all the society has achieved in recent years, there continue to be
new challenges. Today, more than ever, the quote "Change is the only
constant in life" applies to medicine and our relationship with patients.
Who would have thought that 30 years ago we would be emailing patients,
looking up test results on our phone, diagnosing a rash from hundreds of
miles away, or ordering life saving medications after evaluating a patient
over a computer monitor?
With this change come challenges. We are well prepared to meet these
challenges head on and I would like to encourage each of you to find
your passion and get involved as well. Find a topic that speaks to you, is
important to your physician-patient relationship and get involved.
There are several key advocacy areas we will be focusing on this coming
year. Each will affect everyone in the room a bit differently, but all are
vital to the health of our collective patients and preserving the physicianpatient relationship.
The York County Medical Society is supporting the Pennsylvania
Medical Society in their opposition of Senate Bill 25, which would grant
independent practice to CRNPs. This bill would allow nurse practitioners
to practice medicine without a collaborative agreement. While well
intentioned, the result would be the disassociation of team based care
led by a physician who has undergone thousands of hours of training.
Legislating medical degrees will not result in improved patient care or
better access to care.
The York County Medical Society is also supporting the Pennsylvania
Medical Society in its objection to the proposed changes to the medical
liability venue rule. The change would allow medical liability lawsuits to
