Area(s) of Interest: Physician Leadership
The California Medical Association (CMA) is currently seeking physician members to serve on the newly formed Quality and Cost Technical Advisory Committee (QTAC). CMA's committees and councils provide key input to the Board of Trustees to guide the association as it sets new policies.
The deadline to submit an application or nomination for the QTAC is Friday, April 29, 2016.
The purpose of this committee is to provide input in the development of a cohesive and consistent approach to quality and cost rating programs and value-based payment initiatives. Committee members will also review and provide feedback on related proposals from government and private payors.
Committee members should have qualifications, expertise, and/or demonstrated leadership in relevant subject matter. However, CMA welcomes nominations/applications of individuals who seek to develop such qualifications/expertise and have the potential and desire to constructively participate in consensus-based policy development.
The committee will meet via teleconference throughout the year as needed. It is estimated that there will be four conference calls in 2016. Committee members will also be expected to respond quickly to staff requests for review of and feedback on government and private payor quality proposals and cost rating programs.
Nominations must be submitted via email to firstname.lastname@example.org no later than 11:59 p.m. on Friday, April 29, 2016.
