Texas Medicine is available to TMA members and presents timely information on public health, medicolegal issues, medical economics, science, medical education, and legislative affairs affecting Texas physicians and their patients.
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 Deal: Negotiating 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 Learning: Teaching 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.
MIPSperceptions: An AMA study confirms doctors’ perception of Medicare’s quality program as burdensome, but views of its impact on patient care are split.
