Unsung Heroes Program - Recognize Your Practice Administrator

The TCMS Public Relations (PR) Committee has established a new program – Unsung Heroes – as a way to recognize practice administrators/office managers who assist in delivering outstanding quality care to patients. The program is designed to acknowledge their extraordinary abilities and professionalism within the medical community.


To nominate your "unsung hero," complete the nomination form and return it to the Society. The nominating physician must be a TCMS member and work in the same practice as the nominee.


The PR Committee will review the nominations and select an “unsung hero” at the end of each quarter. The administrator being recognized for the quarter will receive a gift certificate and be entered into the grand prize drawing at the end of 2014.


For questions, contact Senior Director of Physician Services and Community Relations Stephanie Triggs atstriggs@tcms.com or 512-206-1124.



Supervising Midlevel Practitioners Seminar

TMA is launching a new statewide ethics CME seminar series New NPP Regulations: Rules You Need to Know on Thursday, May 15 from 6-8:30 pm at the TMA Thompson Auditorium, 401 W 15th St. 


The 83rd Texas Legislature simplified the process by which physicians supervise and delegate to physician assistants and advanced practice registered nurses. While the law firmly establishes the physician-led medical team, it allows all involved to practice at their level of education and training, and places more authority and responsibility on the physician to supervise.

Atlantic Health Partners

Cost-Effective Immunization Rates

TCMS has a strong resource in Atlantic Health Partners to help our members successfully address the financial and administrative challenges of providing immunizations to patients.


Atlantic can also help you best prepare for flu season. Providing the flu vaccine benefits both your patients and your practice. Strengthen flu administration efforts by making vaccination convenient, promoting flu products for the range of age groups treated and maybe most importantly, actively educating and promoting the need of immunization. Informing patients that your office provides flu vaccines may also help strengthen the patient relationship and better maintain your office as the source for all immunizations and other preventive services.  


In addition to providing our members with the lowest prices and best terms for Sanofi, Merck, and MedImmune pediatric, adolescent, adult and flu vaccines, Atlantic also provides:

  • Vaccine reimbursement support and advocacy
