On behalf of the Program Committee, I want to invite you to join us for IMS 2017: Renewing Passion and Purpose in Practice. As we spend precious time thinking about EHRs, ACOs, MIPS, etc., it is important to remind ourselves why we pursued medicine in the first place: to take care of our patients. In order to take care of patients, however, we have to take care of our practices and ourselves. This year's meeting will focus on building the leadership skills and knowledge necessary to lead your practice during these ever-changing times. I look forward to seeing you in Des Moines as we renew our passion and purpose in practice!
