FALL CONFERENCE FOCUSES ON QUEST FOR ACCOUNTABLE CARE

From the first meeting of our new Council on Health Care Quality to the Calendar of Doom, 2011 TMA Fall Conference focused on how TMA can help physicians survive and thrive in the new health care landscape. Among the highlights:

  • Alice G. Gosfield, JD, one of the top 25 health lawyers in the country, kept the audience spellbound as she described numerous ways physicians can keep their independence and actually take advantage of all the health care financing schemes under development.
  • The TMA Board of Trustees heard about the latest round of our research into the needs of physicians employed by large groups and hospital organizations. The board also received presentations on four new sets of tools that will help solo practitioners and physicians in small practices measure their performance and take advantage of change.
  • Former TMA President Bohn Allen, MD, received the TMA Distinguished Service Award.
  • The second class of scholars in the TMA Leadership College spent four days soaking up advice on topics ranging from psychological profiles to active listening skills to thought leadership through social media.
