    New TMA Resource: Electronic Patient Engagement ToolsWith high-deductible health plans and a greater push for personal responsibility, many patients are interested in engaging more closely with their physicians and other health care professionals. Meaningful use requirements and other value-based programs have physicians using electronic communication tools to share information with their patients.
    A Problem That Won't RegisterPhysicians have notified TMA that they're running into trouble with meeting a meaningful use objective that requires public health reporting.
    TMA's Advocacy BlueprintTMA's second edition of our Healthy Vision 2020, articulates specifically and directly what we are asking of the Texas Legislature, the U.S. Congress, and state and federal regulators. The recommendations range from the simple (Put ICD-10 on permanent hold) to the complex (Devise and enact a system for providing health care to low-income Texans with realistic payment to physicians, less stifling state bureaucracy, and no fraud-and-abuse witch hunts) to the most fundamental (Pass no laws or regulations that interfere with the patient-physician relationship).
