Doctors want Medicare pilots continued, Healthways says
The Tennessean, March 28, 2008
Healthways Inc., a Nashville-based disease management program administrator, said that more than 300 doctors, group practices and health systems have appealed to Congress to preserve a pilot program under which the company provides care support to chronically ill Medicare beneficiaries in Maryland and the District of Columbia. The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services said that the overall pilots weren't meeting requirements for improving clinical quality and customer satisfaction and weren't hitting savings targets.
