Of primary concern is the need for accurate reporting so that any information made public is clearly understood by patients and others accessing the data. The NCMS will be working with other state and national physician groups to address this issue and ensure that physicians and practices will be able to review and revise any data before it is released to the public. If you have any questions or comments, please contact the NCMS at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 800-722-1350.
