Patricia A. Markus, a partner in Nelson Mullins Riley & Scarborough LLP’s Raleigh office, has been selected by the Board of Directors of the North Carolina Institute of Medicine (NCIOM) for membership. The appointed membership remains active for five years with potential for two reappointments. Markus joins over 150 leaders in health, medicine, and policy across North Carolina to receive this honor and partner with the North Carolina Institute of Medicine to advance health policy for a healthier state, according to the organization.
“I am grateful for this honor and excited about becoming involved in the forward-looking work of the NCIOM,” said Markus, who represents healthcare providers and technology organizations on a broad array of healthcare regulatory compliance and transactional matters. Through her client and professional association work, Markus has developed a keen interest in healthcare policy issues, including those surrounding medical privacy, behavioral health, and payment and coverage matters.
“We are pleased to welcome these new members to the NCIOM,” said Dr. Adam Zolotor, president and CEO of the NCIOM. “We look forward to working with them to continue the mission of the Institute, seeking constructive solutions to statewide problems that impede the improvement of health and efficient and effective delivery of healthcare for all North Carolinians.”
The North Carolina Institute of Medicine is an independent, quasi-state agency that was chartered by the North Carolina General Assembly in 1983 to provide balanced, nonpartisan information on issues of relevance to the health of North Carolina’s population. The NCIOM convenes task forces of knowledgeable and interested individuals to study complex health issues facing the state in order to develop workable solutions to address these issues to improve health, healthcare access, and quality of healthcare in North Carolina, according to the organization.
