Through much of 2011 and early 2012, the TCMS Policy Committee met and eventually developed a Report that was presented and recently approved by the TCMS Board of Directors.
The report is called "Twin Cities Network" and is intended to be a resource for physicians and others who are exploring what a physician-led network might look like.
The TC Network is written with the specific intent to contribute to improved health care in the State of Minnesota. The Policy Committee is not endorsing "ACOs" per se nor would it consider the development of a TC Network uncomplicated or without risk. Rather, the Policy Committee composed of practicing physicians, chose to enter into an intellectual exercise in hopes that it could provide a framework for what a physician-led network might look like.
The Policy Committee recognizes that there are many things that physicians and co-member-owners would need to keep in mind if they would enter into contractual arrangements similar to those described in the report. A discussion of the TC Network will be in the upcoming July/August 2012 issue of MetroDoctors.
