After review from its Board of Managers, TMA PracticeEdge now has plans to help five groups of TMA physicians implement accountable care organizations (ACOs). In addition to two previously announced ACO projects in Houston and Central Texas, TMA PracticeEdge is poised to move ahead with three more. The five projects include more than 170 physicians and cover 26,000 patient lives.
TMA will soon share more details about the three new ACOs, as well as information about a plan to provide practices technology and tools to take part in Medicare's Chronic Care Management (CCM) program. Read more about CCM in the September issue of Texas Medicine magazine.
Later this fall, TMA PracticeEdge will roll out a purchasing program with the largest group purchasing organization in the country focused on the needs of independent physicians. The program can add value to all TMA members regardless of practice type or specialty. If you are interested in leveling the purchasing playing field with the hospitals, contact TMA PracticeEdge for more information via email or by calling (888) 900-0334.
