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

“Setting reimbursement levels for services rendered by physicians in patient-centered medical homes is still one of the major challenges of the medical home model. Learning the ropes of the contracting process specific to the medical home model will result in a more equitable agreement for everyone bound by the terms of the contract and avoid disappointment or disengagement on the part of contracted providers."
