HEDIS
by Sean Atha,
River City Medical Group
More so than ever before, the private and public entities that are paying for health care services are demanding a greater amount of value. They want to know if what they are paying for is actually improving health outcomes or improving the overall health status of the individuals receiving health services.  The primary industry standard for measuring value is through measuring the quality service indicators identified through HEDIS (Healthcare Effectiveness Data and Information Set). RCMG and PNCMS are currently coordinating programs in your area to help physicians better understand the importance of HEDIS and the roll it can play in payments and increasing patient quality.

Leading Health Organizations
Announce Filing of Statewide Soda Tax
Measure for 2020
By CMA

A ballot measure to protect public health through a state soda tax was filed for the 2020 ballot by two of California’s leading health care provider organizations – the California Medical Association (CMA), representing 43,000 California physicians, and the California Dental Association (CDA), representing 27,000 California dentists.
This announcement comes four days after the multi-billion-dollar soda industry held the state of California hostage with a dangerous ballot threat that jeopardized the fiscal outlook of local governments, forcing the state to pre-empt local authority and pass an unprecedented 12-year moratorium on any local soda tax.

Thank you sponsors
