LET YOUR COLLEAGUES KNOW THEY ARE NOT ALONE
Are you or your physician peers under pressure to sell your practices or to sign up with local accountable care organizations (ACOs) or health information exchanges (HIEs)? Are you getting the message from hospitals or even insurance companies that you have to sign up now or be left out? We urge you to take your time and to look to TMA for help. Our ACO Task Force, under the leadership of Tyler anesthesiologist Asa Lockhart, MD, is developing strong policy for our Council on Legislation to use as it evaluates state and federal proposals for new health care delivery systems. At the same time, we are developing workshops, publications, and consulting programs to help physicians understand these new creatures and give them the guidance to make smart decisions. What’s going on in your medical community? Send me an e-mail with the details.
