TMA EXPLORES OPTIONS WITH OPTUM
Four top TMA leaders met with representatives of OptumHealth to begin a long-term planning process on how we might be able to work together. Optum is a nationwide firm that “provides the information, tools, and solutions that people use to help navigate the health care system.” TMA President Bruce Malone, MD, led the discussion on how Optum and TMA can build an infrastructure for physicians to support accountable care activities, including health information exchanges (HIEs), and financial and outcomes-of-care management systems. TMA President-Elect Michael Speer, MD; Trustee Dan McCoy, MD; and former Council on Socioeconomics Chair Susan Strate, MD, also participated. We expect to conduct a much larger planning session later in the year.
