Texas Medical Association - Austin, TX
TMA PracticeEdge, LLC, is pleased to announce service agreements with Houston Regional Accountable Care Organization, LLC, and Alliance ACO, LLC, in rural, south central Texas. TMA PracticeEdge anticipates these physician-led accountable care organizations (ACOs) will initially represent 50-plus physicians providing care and managing the population health for more than 12,000 patients.
TMA PracticeEdge is a new services company developed by the Texas Medical Association (TMA) to bring physicians the technology and expertise they need to take advantage of new health care payment models. TMA PracticeEdge will provide Texas physicians real options to design their own future. Working with strategic partners, TMA PracticeEdge offers physicians a unique tool kit of ACO services backed by the trusted TMA brand.
“We commend the physicians of Houston Regional and Alliance ACOs for partnering with TMA PracticeEdge to grow and strengthen physician-driven health care in their communities,” said Lou Goodman, CEO of TMA PracticeEdge. Texas is an emerging national leader in the expansion of value-based care models, he said, and physician-led ACOs, taking the initiative, can use the tools offered by TMA PracticeEdge to grow and remain independent.
