Clinical Practice

The clinical practice of infectious diseases requires ID physicians to be versed on a multitude of healthcare issues that range from payer coverage for appropriate reimbursement to reporting for Medicare quality performance programs. The Clinical Practice section of this website or related work of IDSA offers help to clinicians to increase their value in healthcare. These resources include tools and practical information on compensation to help physicians negotiate fair market value for ID services, clinical quality performance improvement measurement and reporting to satisfactorily participate in Medicare quality programs, and tools to improve ID care delivery efficiencies.
