MGMA CHIEF COMES TO TEXAS
I enjoyed an excellent visit with Sue Turney, MD, president and CEO of the Medical Group Management Association (MGMA). Dr. Turney, who is an old friend from her days at the helm of the Wisconsin Medical Society, came to Austin to discuss our plans for the TMA Physician Services Organization (PSO). We explored potential collaborations with MGMA on physician-developed quality measures, physician-directed integrated delivery systems, and how best to involve practice administrators in transforming medical practices. Set to launch early next year, the TMA PSO will offer practices the business services and information technology they need to provide demonstrably better and more efficient patient care and compete in today’s health care marketplace. Because MGMA is a national leader in group practice management, Dr. Turney and her team are natural collaborators for this new TMA business.
