For many practices to remain successful, especially under Medicare Access and CHIP Reauthorization Act (MACRA) requirements, effective population health management is now a primary focus. To help physicians advance quality care as a core value of their practice, with an eye toward the future of accountable care, TMA developed the interactive 2016 Texas Quality Summit.
The summit begins as a pre-conference workshop on Friday, Nov. 18, with quality improvement scenarios and group exercises highlighting the tools and theories of leadership necessary for successful quality and patient safety programs. On Saturday, Nov. 19, the summit offers a series of expert physician panels for a broader audience, as well as presentations on quality, value, and payment. Programming throughout the event will address population health trends in Texas, concrete steps for transitioning to value-based care, in-depth discussion of alternative payment models, and implementation of Medicare's new Quality Payment Program.
The Texas Quality Summit, cohosted by the TMA Council on Health Care Quality and the American College of Medical Quality, offers continuing medical education credit on Friday, Nov. 18, for 5.25 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™ designated as ethics and/or professional responsibility, and also on Saturday Nov. 19, for 7.25 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™ designated as ethics and/or professional responsibility. Seating is limited on both days, so register early to secure your space.
The meeting takes place in Austin at the TMA building in the Thompson Auditorium. Discounted room rates are available to attendees at the Doubletree, conveniently located across the street from the TMA building.
