The Burn Care Organization membership, previously named Institutional Advisory Council (IAC), is an integral component of the ABA committee structure. This membership is comprised of ABA burn centers, engaging in advocacy and participating in issues relevant to burn care.
The Burn Care Organization membership offers a more prominent role within the ABA and a significant voice for concerns and challenges of burn centers, in the public and private sectors.
Private and public-sector advocacy with Congress, key agencies (i.e. CMS) and private payer organizations. Formal voice at the annual National Leadership Conference in Washington, DC, opportunities to meet with your US representatives to discuss key burn care issues and research.
Burn surgeons on the AMA Relative Value Update Committee and participation in the CPT update and review process.
ABA burn care resources are available to membership (i.e. Coding Primer). The discussion platform, myAmeriburn, is a tool for members to discuss issues, network, share ideas, and center resources.
