COUNCILS TACKLE TMA OF THE FUTURE PROJECTS


The fall conference was the first chance for our councils and committees to begin work on the many hands-on, practice-support ideas that came out of this summer’s TMA of the Future meeting. I’d specifically like to thank Carl Trusler, MD, and the Council on Practice Management Services; Frank Villamaria, MD, and the Council on Health Care Quality; and a new task force headed by Trustee Dan McCoy, MD, for diving headlong into:
  • An easy-to-use patient satisfaction tool kit,
  • A multistakeholder coalition to agree on a uniform set of meaningful clinical quality metrics and data processes across all payers in Texas, and
  • A management services organization to support physicians regardless of the practice setting or business strategy they are considering.
Our goal is to complete some of these projects, and more, and have a comprehensive action plan to present to the House of Delegates in May.
