IRVING, Texas (PRWEB) April 28, 2020
U.S. Oral Surgery Management (USOSM) – a specialty management services company that exclusively serves premier oral and maxillofacial surgeons – has added three members to the USOSM Clinical Governance Board. Now comprised of 10 surgeons, the board advises USOSM and its partner practices on important clinical issues oral and maxillofacial surgeons encounter. Board members are selected based on leadership qualities, experience and expertise, and are asked to serve an initial two-year term. The new members are Drs. Vincent J. Perciaccante, J. David Johnson and P. Angie Rake, who will join the board, effective immediately.
“Our individual surgeon partners will always make their own clinical decisions, but they will receive the benefit of expert advice, support and advocacy from the USOSM Clinical Governance Board. We formed this board because clinical autonomy is core to our ideology and we felt it important to have a strong clinical governance structure,” says Richard Hall, USOSM president and CEO. “Our new board members will help us continue strengthening clinical excellence and leadership for all.”
