The second issue of the PROMETHEUS Payment® project’s quarterly newsletter provides brief updates on the program’s recent achievements to test bold, new methods of reforming the way providers in diverse communities are paid. The newsletter highlights news and views from the project pilot sites, as well the latest products to be released.
