Serious Illness Care

MHA works closely with the Department of Public Health and the Board of Registration in Medicine to implement criteria-based standardized policies and monitor SRE practices. The over-arching intent of this effort is to provide for fairness in billing, and to build on our increased transparency and openness with patients and the public. Our fundamental goal is to assure that systems are in place to reduce and ultimately prevent the occurrence of preventable SREs.
