Research and Studies

On a regular basis, I engage in research and studies in a number of different analytical areas. Sometimes, these are commissioned through a private entity and other times, I conduct them on my own. For the latter, I make my results available at no charge. Periodically, I will conduct analysis of changes in RVU values from one period to another. When appropriate, I also publish the results of studies I do that are timely with regard to important practice metrics, such as code and modifier utilization.
