TMA PSO AIMS TO PUT MORE OF THE HEALTH CARE DOLLAR IN YOUR POCKET
Whether it’s by increasing quality of the care you provide, making your practice more efficient, or helping you deliver better value in the marketplace, TMA’s Physician Services Organization’s (PSO’s) goal is to put more of the health care dollar in the physician’s pocket. That’s the assessment Dan McCoy, MD, chair of the PSO Steering Committee, delivered as the group took a big breath and reviewed its progress to date. We’ve reviewed dozens of responses to our Request for Information and identified nearly 100 potential service offerings for physicians. We’ve identified which products and services will be most needed by practices at various stages of sophistication, from the simplest to the most mature. Basically, the health care marketplace is at the point where, in the old days, physicians would be looking for new services to provide, new procedures to perform, and new ways to see more patients each day. But the paradigm has shifted. It is no longer “more is better.” Now it’s “better is more.” And the TMA PSO can help our members get there. Look for the formal launch of the PSO in the first quarter of 2014.
