PICKING WISCONSIN'S BRAIN OVER CLAIMS DATABASE

Several senior TMA staff and I met with leaders of the Wisconsin Medical Society to discuss that state’s all-payer claims database. We expect that could become an issue in the 2013 Texas Legislature. Knowing the limitations of harvesting useable data from claims forms, we want to make sure such a database would give Texas physicians helpful ways you can compare your practice with your peers. It’s very important that the data be used for process improvement, and not for physician ranking schemes.
