Certified, but denied: the impact of board certification on patient care
In this episode, we’re joined by Emmanuel K. Konstantakos, an orthopedic surgeon, and Jeff Morris, an attorney and CEO the of American Board of Physician Specialties. They discuss the ongoing debate about physician board certifications and the role of monopolistic practices in limiting patient access to care. During the COVID-19 crisis, discriminatory hiring practices left many highly skilled, dual-board certified physicians unable to provide emergency and telemedicine services. The guests will explore the dangers of monopolies in health care, the reasons behind these practices, and the impact on patient safety and care. The guests will ask important questions about the true motives behind these practices and the need for change in how we approach physician board certifications.
Emmanuel K. Konstantakos is an orthopedic surgeon. Jeff Morris is an attorney and CEO, American Board of Physician Specialties.
They share their stories and discuss the KevinMD article, “Stop the ABMS monopoly.”

With so many demands on their time, physicians today report record levels of burnout. Burnout is caused by many factors, one of which is clinical documentation. Studies indicate physicians spend two hours documenting care for every hour spent with patients.
At Nuance, we are committed to helping physicians do what you love – care for patients – and spend less time on clinical documentation. The Nuance Dragon Ambient eXperience, or DAX for short, is an AI-powered, ambient clinical intelligence solution that automatically captures patient encounters securely and accurately at the point of care. Physicians who use DAX have reported a 50 percent decrease in documentation time and a 70 percent reduction in feelings of burnout, and 83 percent of patients say their physician is more personable and conversational.
