Celebrating the one-year anniversary of the Texas Family Docs blog (give or take a few days), gives us the opportunity to reflect on how we’re doing and give you, our members, a preview of what’s to come.
We launched on Jan. 10, 2011, with a goal to increase our connection with you and to encourage more interaction in the “post-health-reform era of rapid changes to the practice of medicine.” And we promised to share insights beyond our traditional news coverage on the issues you care about the most.
Through 36 posts, we explored the latest hot topics in policy: ACOs, the RUC, and the RACs; the often-maddening 82nd Texas Legislature; the even more maddening efforts to cut federal spending and address Medicare physician pay; and the importance of investing in primary care; and how the larger public views family medicine.
Of course now that we’re settled into a groove, we’re changing things up again! In just about a month, the Texas Family Docs blog will be rolled into the newly redesigned TAFP website. We hope it will further advance the mission of the blog and make it an indispensible resource for you. So watch for that announcement here in our original home and get ready for another great year in the blogosphere. Thanks for joining us!
In the spirit of the holidays, we’d like to take a moment to thank you for your continued membership.
Representing 7,000 family physician members, family medicine resident members, and medical student members across the state, TAFP stands strong with you in the mission to improve the health of your patients, families, and communities. You – our members – are our greatest asset and most precious resource, and what we can do together and learn from each other is the greatest member benefit we have to offer. We’re here to support you in your practice and we look forward to serving you in 2012.
From all of us at TAFP, happy holidays!
