Discern Vice President Erik Muther Co-Authors Primary Care Transparency Report

February 2018

Discern Health Vice President Erik Muther and Mary C. Stock Keister, MD, of the Lehigh Valley Health Network co-authored a summary report of recommendations to improve primary care transparency within the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania.

The high-level report describes the output of a multi-stakeholder workgroup of 22 health care leaders. The Pennsylvania Department of Health convened the workgroup as part of the Health Innovation in Pennsylvania plan funded by a State Innovation Model planning grant. The workgroup’s goal was to help develop recommendations to improve transparency for purchasers and consumers while streamlining and standardizing primary care reporting requirements across payers and regulators. The report outlines a path to primary care transparency for the Commonwealth, including recommendations to leverage standardized reporting, reduce provider administrative burden, and employ a suggested inventory of core quality measures.
