TMA PANEL FINALIZES HEALTH SYSTEM REFORM PRINCIPLES; DICKEY TO HEAD NEW TASK FORCE
TMA’s Select Committee on Health System Reform has completed work on the guiding principles we will use to evaluate reform proposals coming from the Obama administration, Congress, and elsewhere. Dr. Williams has appointed a new TMA Health System Reform Task Force to use those principles to vet and examine and measure every idea that comes out of Washington. Former American Medical Association President Nancy Dickey, MD, now the vice chancellor for health affairs in the Texas A&M University System, will chair that task force. The House of Delegates will consider the principles as part of a final select committee report to the house during TexMed 2009. If you have concerns, questions, comments, or suggestions about the principles, please contact your county medical society’s delegation to the House of Delegates or drop me an e-mail.
