The American Association of Clinical Endocrinologists (AACE) is a professional medical organization whose mission is devoted to the enhancement of the practice of clinical endocrinology. AACE works with Congress, federal agencies and with other health care professionals to advocate the necessary changes to benefit patients and endocrinologists, and to keep abreast of important aspects of scientific, economic, social and political factors impacting the practice of clinical endocrinology.
In the constant changing world of Socioeconomics, Member Advocacy, and physician practice management, it is now, more than ever, necessary for AACE to continue to strive better to assist their members in areas related to Socioeconomics and Member Advocacy including health policy and regulation, Medicare, coding, and third party reimbursement. For this reason, it is important that the AACE Socioeconomics and Member Advocacy Department maintain a high level of skill and working knowledge related to these matters.
The overall goal of the department is to strive to increase the effectiveness and efficiency in its ability to provide assistance to the association membership on issues specific to endocrinology, Socioeconomics and Member Advocacy.
