QUOTE ATTRIBUTABLE TO MELANIE MATTHEWS, HIN EXECUTIVE VP AND COO:

"With many physician quality reporting initiatives still voluntary and new models of care under development, now is the ideal time for physicians to 'tune up' their practices --- making the process-oriented, technological and cultural adjustments necessary to support successful participation. As practices that have already done this will attest, patients come out the winners in this equation, benefiting from a more coordinated method of care delivery."
