L.A. County To Revamp Agreements With Clinics
On Tuesday, the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors approved a plan to restructure agreements with community clinics. John Shunhoff -- deputy director of the Department of Health Services -- said the county is restructuring the agreements to comply with the federal health reform law and to create a more cohesive countywide clinic system. Under the new agreements, clinics would be required to share information with other county facilities and to reserve clinic space for patient referrals from county facilities.
