MODERN HEALTHCARE INVITES COMMENTARY FROM DR. BROTHERTON
TMA President Steve Brotherton, MD, has become a regular source for quotes in Modern Healthcare stories about issues ranging from the Affordable Care Act to Medicare to tort reform. The editors were impressed enough to ask him to pen a commentary for the magazine. Under the headline, “Obamacare needs changes to be more physician friendly,” Dr. Brotherton outlines our “fix what’s broken, find what’s missing, keep what’s good” approach to health care reform. He writes about repealing the SGR, putting ICD-10 “on permanent hold,” and passing the Medicare Patient Empowerment Act. “If our lawmakers have the same concern for their constituents as we have for our patients, they will pass these measures,” he says. If you’re a print subscriber, you’ll see the article in the December edition. If you have online access, you can read it here. If you have neither, you’ll just have to take my word for it — he represents Texas well.
