Greenfield named to state committee to improve Medi-Cal performance ยป

Dr. Sheldon Greenfield
Dr. Sheldon Greenfield, the Donald Bren Professor of Medicine at UCI, has been named to an advisory panel that will develop a quality improvement plan for the state's $46 billion-a-year Medi-Cal program. Greenfield is one of nine statewide healthcare leaders selected for the Medi-Cal Performance Advisory Committee, established this year by the UC Davis Institute for Population Health Improvement. As part of their efforts, panel members will help direct how Medi-Cal funds are spent by setting performance standards against which healthcare providers and hospitals will be measured. "We want the 7.5 million people in California who rely on this funding to get the most from the state's investment in their health," said Greenfield (pictured), executive co-director of UCI's Health Policy Research Institute and a nationally recognized leader in healthcare reform. He recently co-chaired an Institute of Medicine committee that established national priorities for a comparative effectiveness research effort funded by the 2009 federal stimulus plan.
