BALTIMORE, March 17 — Physicians and patients of community- based medical practices in the Washington, D.C. metro area will benefit from a new partnership between Physicians Practice and Washington Hospital Center. The new partnership will provide resources to help local physicians manage their practices more efficiently, thereby improving patient care.Under this partnership, Physicians Practice(R), America’s Leading Practice Management Journal, will be mailed monthly, beginning in March, to approximately 1,100 doctors in the region, with articles pertinent to the daily business issues faced by area physicians and their staff. The journal will also feature a section sponsored by the Washington Hospital Center highlighting news in clinical and scientific research.

“We’re excited to partner with Physicians Practice and have the opportunity to strengthen our relationship with community physicians and improve patient care,” said Dr. Janis M. Orlowski, senior vice president for medical affairs and chief medical officer. “We now have a channel to communicate our growing medical services and initiatives and provide practice management information to help physicians operate their medical practices,” added Dr. Orlowski.

This commitment to improve care and services to patients and physicians is also reflected in the hospital’s reputation for excellence in cardiovascular, neurosciences, gastrointestinal disorders, endocrinology and women’s services.
