TAFP Annual Session 2012

July 7, 2012
By

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 ;-).

    The message that the AAFP is putting out is that their members are doing such a terrible job that their practices need to be “transformed.” They may deny that’s what they’re saying, but that is what other docs and patients are hearing. Very strange.

    Any way for non-Texans to get access to your Sunday talk? Thanks

    Great talk at the TAFP Meeting. I was kinda bummed that you could only talk for an hour. Fortunately I had my e-book reader and wifi access, so I purchased your book 45 minutes into the lecture, read it almost all the way home and finished today. Thanks for the great dose of common sense.

      Mark,

      Thanks for your support and I’m glad you liked the talk, and I’m glad you liked the book. Most important, thanks for being there for the people of rural Texas. If you don’t mind my request, please recommend my book to others.

      Richard
