core functions of treatment and payment. These activities,
which are limited to the activities listed in the definition of
“health care operations” at 45 CFR 164.501, include
1. Conducting quality assessment and improvement
activities, population-based activities relating to
improving health or reducing health care costs, and

professionals, evaluating provider and health plan performance,
