Texas physician practices are making great strides in patient care through preventive services and the use of health information technology. To recognize these practices, TMF Health Quality Institute, TMA, and Texas Osteopathic Medical Association have partnered to introduce the inaugural Texas Physician Practice Quality Improvement Award program.
The program is open to all Texas physician practices with one or more Texas-licensed physicians providing care to Medicare fee-for-service patients. Award criteria include adoption of health information technology, use of population care management methods, participation in data-reporting initiatives and top performance on nationally recognized clinical outcomes measures.
Physician practices are encouraged to self-nominate by Sept. 30.
