    In an article titled "“Are ‘useless’ exams raising the cost of healthcare in Alabama?", Alabama Today is raising the issue of the value of Maintenance of Certification (MOC) towards the healthcare system. Arguments are made that time and resources could be better spent with patients rather than on certification.  Click here to link to the full article. Members may add their comment on the NAMEC web site as well.

    The bill allows the medical staff at hospitals to determine whether to require MOC or accept other forms of competency measures (such as Continuing Medical Education) for credentialing and/or admitting privileges. Hospitals requiring MOC must adopt bylaws making it a stipulation for work or network participation.

    “[The Tennessee Medical Association's] goal, after years of complaints from our member physicians about MOC testing requirements, was simply to give doctors options for maintaining and improving their professional competency," said Nita W. Shumaker, MD, TMA president 2017-2018. "Doctors should not be forced by hospitals or insurance companies to participate in an arbitrary certification process that has not been shown to improve quality of care. This bill gives much-needed relief for doctors who may choose Continuing Medical Education or other forms of ongoing learning. Thanks to Senator Briggs, Rep. Williams and the other members of our state legislature, Tennessee is now one of few states developing real solutions to this national issue.”

    It was great seeing so many of you at the recent Alliance meeting. During the meeting, our current Board of Directors met and discussed ways we can better serve our membership – YOU – and resources and services that we can provide accordingly. In turn, we realized most of us are checking supporter’s websites weekly, if not multiple times during the week for recently released RFPs/CGAs/REGAs. But as we all know; these tasks get hard to fit into our busy schedules. During this grant crazed time, we thought it would be helpful to take this task off your hands. Therefore, we will begin sending out recently released postings to you on a weekly basis. Please find current RFPs noted below.
