The December edition of the Network’s facility newsletter, Network 16 News, has been published and distributed. You can find a copy online at https://www.nwrn.org/providers-and-professional-staff/nw16n.html. This issue features an article on Network 16’s merger with the HealthInsight Quality Improvement Organization to form the HealthInsight ESRD Alliance, and the subsequent granting to the Alliance of new five-year contracts for the five traditional Network 16 states, and for Network 18’s Southern California service area.
It also includes notes on reporting requirements for Involuntary Discharge, and on PSC availability, and announcement of four continuing education opportunities:
