A BSM consultant was recently recognized for his dedication to furthering industry professionalism by the American Society of Ophthalmology Administrators (ASOA).

Andrew Maller received this year’s prestigious ASOA Pinnacle Award for Volunteerism, which recognizes ASOA members who tirelessly contribute to the society’s mission of advancing the skills and professionalism of ophthalmic practice management.

 “I am extremely excited to be the Pinnacle Award winner!" Maller said. "Just being nominated for the award is a major honor. I am proud to be an active member of ASOA and to support its mission."

Maller received the award May 6 during the ASOA Opening General Session at the ASCRS-ASOA Symposium and Congress in Los Angeles

“This award is well deserved and a wonderful acknowledgement of the terrific work Andrew has done to support (ASOA) members,” said Lisa Peltier, BSM senior consultant. “At BSM, we’re all very proud of Andrew!”

According to ASOA, nominees must be society members for at least three years and are evaluated based on their involvement in the following categories:

  • Serving on ASOA committees and/or task forces
  • Speaking at ASOA Congress on Ophthalmic Practice Management
  • Actively contributing to ASOA EyeMail
  • Writing articles for Administrative Eyecare magazine
  • Serving as a roundtable facilitator or session moderator at ASOA Congress on Ophthalmic Practice Management

This year 87 individuals were eligible for the award, said Laureen Rowland, ASOA executive director. From that list, the ASOA board selects a winner.

“Andrew has been very involved in several task forces (and) the Administrator Beginners Circle (ABC) initiative and is a frequent speaker at the annual meeting, regional meetings, and on webinars and podcasts," Rowland said, explaining what made Maller standout among the nominees. "He is also a (Certified Ophthalmic Executive) COE."

The award is presented in memory of William “Bill” Rose, Jr., who was well-known for his dedication and personal quest to educate ASOA members. Rose was a noted expert in coding, reimbursement, and compliance in the field of ophthalmology.

The Pinnacle Award for Volunteerism has been regularly bestowed since 2002.
