QUOTE ATTRIBUTABLE TO MELANIE MATTHEWS, HIN EXECUTIVE VP AND COO:
"WellPoint's care compacts build accountability between primary care and specialists in care delivery collaborations like the medical neighborhood, but also provide great lessons for any practices or health systems that refer patients to specialists and wish to formalize that referral and reporting arrangement."
