  • DCMS members convened at the Morton Arboretum on Wednesday, October 5, 2016, for the Society’s Annual Meeting.

    Against the backdrop of trees in early autumn, the Board of Directors approved Bylaws changes and the slate of candidates for 2017 office, physicians visited with colleagues and exhibitors during the reception, and following dinner Lori Klinka offered strategies for dealing with difficult people (and assuring you aren’t one of them!).

    DCMS would like to thank the attendees, our Gold Level Exhibitors, ISMIE Insurance, Health Care Associates Credit Union and Professional Solutions Insurance Co., and our and Silver Level Hospital Partner, Advocate Good Samaritan Hospital.

    Photos from the event are available on the DCMS Facebook page.

  • Starting August 25, 2016 and continuing over the next couple of weeks, the Office of the Surgeon General is going to be sending a letter on the opioid epidemic to nearly 2.3 million physicians and other health professionals. We wanted to be sure that you first saw the letter from us to give you the opportunity to share it with your members, urge them to look for it in their mailboxes, and respond to the Surgeon General’s call to action on safe prescribing education, access to treatment for opioid use disorder, and compassionate care without stigma.

  • More news about how Illinois State Medical Society is working for all physicians in Illinois.

    The Illinois Supreme Court’s 5-0 decision struck down an unconstitutional mandate to impose a six-person limit in civil jury size. The flawed jury reduction legislation passed during the final days of Governor Quinn’s administration. The controversial law was considered an outgoing gesture to help personal injury lawyers, because smaller juries are perceived as more favorable to their clients.

  • The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) issued a final rule outlining the requirements of the new Quality Payment Program for physicians that was created by the Medicare Access and CHIP Reauthorization Act (MACRA) on October 14, 2016. While the AMA is in the process of fully analyzing the regulations, a first review reveals that CMS responded to many of the concerns expressed by physicians about the proposed rule issued last spring. On November 21 and December 6, the AMA will host educational webinar sessions to help physicians prepare and understand what the final rule means for their practice.

The DuPage County Medical Society, established in 1918, is the professional organization for physicians in our community. Members are local physicians, medical students and residents dedicated to serving the healthcare needs of DuPage County patients. Members are also part of the Illinois State Medical Society, the leading advocate for physicians and patients across Illinois.


  • “The only explanation I can give for a DuPage County physician not being a DCMS member is that they simply don't know what they're missing! Building camaraderie with colleagues within and beyond your own specialty, learning pearls to improve patient care, advancing our profession -- investing in DCMS membership offers these opportunities and so much more.”

    Providing Student Scholarships

    Fifty years ago the DuPage County Medical Society led efforts to immunize our community against Polio – protecting thousands while prompting the creation of the DuPage Medical Society Foundation, a 501(c)(3) public charity. As our Foundation celebrates its Golden Anniversary, the $365,000 it has awarded in scholarships to area students in medicine and allied health professions remains tangible evidence of DCMS support for quality healthcare in our community, now and into the future.

    • December 6, Moving from Survive to Thrive: Flourishing in a Value-based Payment Environment

      December 6, Moving from Survive to Thrive: Flourishing in a Value-based Payment Environment

      DuPage County Medical Society and the American Medical Association are teaming up to bring you a timely and CME-eligible seminar on the current payment environment.

      During this interactive program, speaker Bruce Bagley, MD, will offer an overview of the changing nature of medical practice and the transformation of the payment environment from volume to value.

      Success in dealing with risk based contracts, Medicare Advantage, Accountable Care Organizations and MACRA require changes in how we work. As physicians, we must keep the patient at the center of our attention while navigating practice changes. Drawing on the AMA’s STEPS Forward program and illuminating examples from around the nation, Doctor Bagley’s presentation will provide help and support for practice transformation.
