Financial incentives bring new county hospital programs
Ventura County Star

The Ventura County Health Care System is expanding its doctor-training program, adding long-distance translators and launching services to improve terminal care with hopes the changes will help the hospital bring in $100 million over five years in federal funding.

The changes reflect a pilot incentive-based program being used by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services to allot $3.3 billion over five years to public hospital systems across California.
