President’s Message

Rohit Bhatheja, MDDear Members,
We welcomed this new year with the Spirit of Giving. This year we had our first main gala/event at Dr. Phillips Center for the Performing Arts: Live Orlando Ballot Performance on April 27 th, 2019. For the art lovers, it was a real treat! Do check the pictures on the website!

This year is going to be another year of new challenges in healthcare, with an ever changing landscape: new CMS guidelines, technological innovation in healthcare delivery, novel models of use of AI, virtual healthcare, tele robots in ICU, and unpredictable revenue streams across the board for physician practices. There is closing of the gap by healthcare institutions with creative healthcare delivery models and acquisitions, and out-patient procedural centers in partnership with local practices.

With the strong presence of CAPI member (over 600) physicians and dentists of Indian Origin in almost every institution in central Florida, and the phenomenal leadership we have shown, there is even a greater need for us to partner in changing the healthcare landscape in central Florida.

We are also planning a Membership drive, educational seminars, networking events with other local organizations, health fairs, and volunteering events throughout the year. Please keep an eye out for upcoming networking and event mixers. We are going to be partnering not only with other local Indian origin organizations, but also with other local and national not-for-profit institutions for the greater good.

Being providers, we understand the most what consideration, kindness and gratitude are all about. Let us make it happen! Your participation and introduction of new members is going to keep us strong.

Let us challenge ourselves and raise the bar! Give back in the Spirit of Giving!
