“On behalf of the physician members of the Medical Society of New Jersey (MSNJ), we applaud Governor Murphy’s establishment of the Office of Health Care Accountability and Transparency, announced during today’s State of the State address.”
As the leading advocate for patient and physician rights in the state of New Jersey, MSNJ supports all efforts that promote the betterment of public health and safeguard the delivery of quality medical care to those throughout the state. The citizens of New Jersey deserve affordable medical care and should not have to sacrifice quality as work continues on how to best control costs. As such, MSNJ believes transparency is key in the reduction of processes that add additional costs to healthcare. Increased transparency and accountability will assist physicians in the delivery of quality care while ensuring patients can afford the services they may require.
MSNJ and our physician members are eager to work together with the Office of Health Care Accountability and Transparency to support efforts that further reduce costs, improve price transparency and uphold accountability of those operating in the healthcare arena.”
To promote the betterment of the public health and the science and the art of medicine, to enlighten public opinion in regard to the problems of medicine, and to safeguard the rights of the practitioners of medicine.
