TEXAS PHYSICIAN LEADERS HELP FOUNDATION DRAW BLUEPRINT FOR THE FUTURE
I am grateful to four leaders of Texas physician groups for spending a morning with a health policy expert the Physicians Foundation hired to help us chart a path toward an affordable, high-quality health care delivery system for the future. Professor Jeff Goldsmith laid out the draft of his Blueprint for American Health Care, which outlines what the American health care system should look like from the physicians’ and patients’ perspective. Giving expert feedback to Jeff during a four-hour meeting at the TMA building were Immediate Past President Bruce Malone, MD; Austin Regional Clinic (ARC) CEO Norm Chenven, MD, and ARC internist Howard Marcus, MD; and Austin Diagnostic Clinic CEO Bob Spurck. The Physicians Foundation will issue the final report this year.
