SCOTTSDALE, AZ, September 13, 2023 — American Orthopedic Partners (AOP) is pleased to announce that its Chief Medical Officer, Dr. Theodore Schlegel, was a speaker at the PHA Leadership Summit held from September 10 – 12, 2023 in Scottsdale, Arizona. PHA, an acronym for Physician-Led Healthcare for America, promotes, educates, and advocates for exceptional patient-centered care through physician leadership.

Dr. Schlegel took the stage on the final day of the summit, September 12, where he headed up an insightful breakout session on the topic of outpatient migration, along with Dr. Adam Bruggeman of Texas Spine Care Center. Building on the details outlined in his “Outpatient Migration White Paper,” Dr. Schlegel explored the various aspects of this growing trend in the healthcare industry.

“Outpatient migration is not just a shift in location; it’s a fundamental transformation in how we deliver care,” said Dr. Schlegel. “At AOP, we are embracing this change by showing our surgeon partners how to prioritize patient convenience and reduce costs, all while maintaining the highest standards of quality care.”

The PHA Leadership Summit brought together healthcare leaders from across the nation to discuss current trends, challenges, and opportunities in the field. Dr. Schlegel’s participation underscores AOP’s commitment to staying at the forefront of orthopedic care and shaping the future of the industry.

“We are proud to have had Dr. Schlegel represent AOP at this prestigious event,” said Jay Bonner, MD, Founder and Chairman of the Board of American Orthopedic Partners. “His insights into outpatient migration reflect our proactive approach to helping other orthopedic professionals create transformational change within their practices.”
