Kimberly Miller, president and chief executive officer of Mercy Medical Center, Williston, N.D., recently participated in a forum in Fargo, N.D., hosted by the Medicare Payment Advisory Commission (MedPAC). In a presentation to members of the commission, Miller applauded them for moving in the direction of paying for quality services. She asked them to recognize that North Dakota is a state in which statistics demonstrate high quality of care combined with Medicare payments that are less than those paid in states with lower quality of care.
