The NCMS also joined dozens of state medical societies and physician organizations in supporting HR 451—Healthcare Truth and Transparency Act of 2011. The “Sullivan-Scott” bill seeks to ensure that patients have accurate information about the education, training, and qualifications of individuals providing their health care services.
