Practicing medicine involves both caring for patients and running a successful business. Many factors contribute to your business, and DCMS is your best resource for that information. Legislative actions, private payor trends, compliance issues, reimbursement discrepancies, and the economic climate in the North Texas healthcare arena all influence the success of your business. The Dallas County Medical Society tracks each of these factors and will keep you informed and up to date through this Business of Medicine section.

Resources are available through DCMS and TMA to help with many decisions, including practice management, practice establishment, EMR selection and implementation. You also will find standardized forms and letters, and tips and tools to help you keep your doors open.

If there is information you can’t find here or would want to see added to the Business of Medicine section, contact Anna Acuña, Vice President, Business of Medicine/Advocacy, at or call 214-413-1424.
