TEXAS PHYSICIANS BUILD GRASSROOTS STRENGTH THROUGH COUNTY CONFERENCE
I joined the chief executives of more than a dozen Texas county medical societies in a day-long conference to discuss our shared challenges and opportunities in this tumultuous heath care environment. While health system reform and demands for physicians to join the information technology revolution are creating upheavals, they also give us new chances to provide value to Texas physicians. Issues on the table ranged from politics, Medicaid, and physician employment to TMA’s new online CME delivery system, concerns over grievances filed against physicians, and physician health and rehabilitation programs. I know this sounds like a broken record, but the strength of Texas medicine stems from the grassroots involvement of physicians at the county level and the tremendous relationship between TMA and the county societies.
