I’m off to the Texas Academy of Family Physicians annual session in Austin this week. It will be very exciting for me.
On Thursday, I’ll present my new primary care payment proposal to the Commission on Health Care Services and Managed Care. I believe the meeting is open to all TAFP members if anyone wants to hear what I’ve cooked up. I estimate I’ll start my presentation at about 9:10.
On Sunday, I’ll speak at the general session to all the assembled family physicians on the importance of cost-effective care. I’ll follow the president of the AAFP, Glenn Stream, MD. I’ll take issue with some of messages and efforts of the AAFP; how it continues to do a poor job explaining to the American people how family physicians deliver better care at a lower cost. Should be fun!!
If any of you see me there, please say hi. Oh, and of course I’ll bring a few extra books available for sale ;-).
