TAKING THE LEAD — Sen. Charles Schumer is sponsoring federal legislation to eradicate lead poisoning from water and paint chips in New York.

It will invest $70 billion to reduce lead exposure, which can cause serious health problems in children.

OPEN NOTES — Mount Sinai Health System has launched OpenNotes, which allows patients electronic access to their provider’s notes in their medical records, according to a press release from Sinai. “When patients can access their physicians’ notes, they can better understand their medical issues and treatment plan as active partners in their care,” Sandra Myerson, system chief patient experience officer, said in a press release. “This can ultimately lead to improved patient engagement, patient empowerment, and communication between patient and physician.” http://bit.ly/1SlmRii
ACROSS THE RIVER: Health Republic Insurance of New Jersey, the only health insurance co-op in the nation to show a profit in the first nine months of 2015, posted a net loss of $17.6 million for the year. The loss was mostly attributable to a $17.1 million payment the nonprofit insurer had to make toward the Affordable Care Act’s risk adjustment program. As a result, the consumer operated and oriented plan, which was kick-started with nearly $15 million in federal loans under the ACA to increase competition in the state’s federally facilitated health insurance exchange, is now looking to increase its enrollment in plans offered outside of the exchange, moving away from the very marketplace that brought it into existence.
