How Can TMA Communicate With You Better?
By David Doolittle


You’re reading this, so you probably know that the Texas Medical Association publishes stories every day on our website and every month in our magazine.

So unless you’re reading this because you lost a bet, you probably find some value in what we have to say.

Well, we certainly place a lot of value in what you have to say. That’s why TMA surveys Texas physicians every two years to get a better understanding of what it’s like to practice medicine in the state.

We’ve been doing it every each month in 2018 on a variety of topics.

September is our final survey of the year, and it’s on a topic dear to my heart as editor of TMA’s physician publications: How we communicate with you, our member physicians.

If you hadn’t noticed, TMA made a lot of changes to our publications in 2018: From a revamped magazine and a daily newsletter with information targeted specifically to you, to a website that ties together our coverage of complex issues. Many of the ideas we implemented came from a special survey we conducted last year. 

Now we want to know if we hit the mark.

Help TMA continue to effectively communicate with you. Check your email inbox for this month’s survey.

If you’re looking for even more of an incentive, try this on: Physicians who complete every monthly survey in 2018 will be entered to win one of five Apple iPads.

If you have not received any surveys this year, email Trina Bean, TMA’s health care data analyst.
