OUR HEALTHY VISION GROWS EVEN SHARPER
We wrote and published TMA’s Healthy Vision 2020 in 2012 as a roadmap for our advocacy efforts for the remainder of the decade. Two years and several awards later, our legislative and congressional destinations have shifted; we accomplished some of our original objectives, and new problems have emerged for us to solve on behalf of Texas physicians. That’s why our lobby, policy, legal, and communication teams rewrote the document over the summer. Every member who attends TMA’s 2014 Fall Conference this weekend will receive a copy of Healthy Vision 2020, second edition, at registration. And Dawn Buckingham, MD, chair of the TMA Council on Legislation, will discuss it during the conference General Session. It also will be available to read and download from www.texmed.org/healthyvision by then, or you can order print copies from the TMA Knowledge Center at (800) 880-7955. New this year are not only a comprehensive list of advocacy accomplishments from the first edition, but also separate sections on health information technology hassles to be solved and Medicaid red tape to be cut.
