The Business of Medicine: For better or worse, medicine involves more than just taking care of patients. Whether it’s a pandemic, health plan contracts, quality programs, or hospital relations, this issue takes a look at how physicians and medical education are constantly adapting. And TMA has resources to help along the way.

This Changes Everything: Adopting telemedicine may have been one of the biggest pandemic-inspired adjustments for most practices. But other technologies – and some non-technological projects – suddenly graduated from interesting side project to urgent priority. 

Deal or No DealNegotiating a health plan contract is one of the most important business moves an independent physician can make. 

Livelihood on the Line: A San Antonio cardiothoracic surgeon sues over alleged disparagement and malicious peer review by a local hospital. 

 Systematic LearningTeaching health systems science helps medical students understand bigger picture of how health care works – before they graduate into the real world. 

PEAQ Performance?A New Blues performance recognition program shows little progress in addressing physicians’ concerns over such quality programs.
