AAAHC Takes Seat on ACA Advisory Panels
We’re pleased to announce that Karen Connolly, chair of AAAHC health plan advisory committee, has been selected to represent the AAAHC on two expert panels that will help shape implementation of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (ACA). The invitation extended to AAAHC to be a part of these advisory panels demonstrates the strong influence of the AAAHC and its accredited organizations.
Connolly will play a major role on the quality improvement strategic panel and the quality reporting systems panel. Each panel is a part of the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) and includes representatives of state governments, insurance commissioners, health plans, consumers and recognized accrediting organizations.
