    2013 TMA Annual Report
    America's biggest and best medical association emerged from three intense special sessions of the Texas Legislature in 2013 with long-sought, even precedent-setting victories that focus on patient safety and medical practice viability. TMA successfully advocated passage of bills that reduce the red tape binding your practice, give your patients new protections, bolster the state's GME program, promote transparent insurance markets, and prevent unqualified health professionals from delivering care outside their expertise.

    Healthy Vision 2020We desperately need a clear view of the future of health care in Texas. Our growing population, beset by expensive acute and chronic diseases, doesn’t have enough physicians to care for them now. Many physicians face the deluge of new laws, rules, and regulations that keeps coming between them and their patients. With Healthy Vision 2020, we bring into focus a clear and distinct view of the rest of this decade in Texas health care.
    CME Anytime, Anywhere!The Texas Medical Board required physicians to have 48 CME credits every two years including 2 credits of ethics. Come to our Education Center to find a wide array of programs to fulfill your requirements for you and your staff.
    See More Patients; Spend Less Time on PaperworkMany physicians say electronic health records (EHRs) have not made their lives any easier. Though the systems can improve accuracy and efficiency in a medical practice, EHRs often mean extra administrative work for physicians and less face time with patients. To address these issues, some physicians have hired medical scribes, who sit in during patient visits and document the exam in the EHR. Doctors says scribes make it possible for them to focus on the patient again.
