TMA LAUNCHES PHYSICIAN SERVICES ORGANIZATION FOR PATIENT CARE
TMA — along with the Dallas and Harris county medical societies — announced the establishment of an organization to deliver doctors the survival tools they need to provide demonstrably better and more efficient patient care and compete in today’s health care marketplace. “We need to shift the balance of power away from the government and the large hospital systems, and back to the patients and their physicians,” said TMA President Steve Brotherton, MD. The organization will offer services that bolster physicians’ clinical and financial autonomy, tailored to a practice’s current level of sophistication. A key element will be providing physicians easy access to data to measure and improve their clinical performance and their financial viability. Look for more details, and announcement of our first pilot projects, in the very near future.
