TMA's 2012 Winter Conference on Jan. 27-28 features innovative leaders who will discuss challenges Texas physicians face as a result of health system reform. They'll also offer recommendations on how physicians can take advantage of innovations and technologies to improve and streamline care and payment. Texas legislators and candidates also will be on hand to discuss the 2012 primary elections.
A dawn-duster session from 7:30 to 8:30 am on Saturday will show you how incorporating nonphysician practitioners into your practice can be a smart move that results in enhanced profitability and efficiency but that also requires careful preparation.
The general session beginning at 8:45 am will include a presentation on the latest in care and payment innovation from Nancy Nielson, MD, PhD, the senior adviser to the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Innovation and past American Medical Association president.
If you have always wanted to take advantage of new social media tools like Facebook, YouTube, Twitter, or LinkedIn but don't know how to start, the new TMA Social Media Lab is just the place for you. Three sessions are scheduled for Friday afternoon and Saturday morning. Space is limited so you must preregister when you register for the conference.
You can register for the conference online. Free registration is one of the many benefits of your TMA membership. Nonmembers may attend for $125.
