CORRECTION...by CAPG

LOS ANGELES--()--Quote from Don Crane should read: “This is a tremendous honor for Dr. Nguyen and further validates CAPG’s expertise in coordinated care, in particular implementing MIPS and moving into APMS by 2017 – only months away!” (instead of “This tremendous honor for Dr. Nguyen and further validates CAPG’s expertise in coordinated care, in particular implementing MIPS and moving into APMS by 2017 – only months away!”)

The corrected release reads:
