Discussing Priorities For Health Care Overhaul
The Wall Street Journal on Monday published excerpts from a task force discussion on health care moderated by Journal reporter Laura Landro.
The task force, which included health care company CEOs and lawmakers, provided recommendations to the Journal CEO Council for five priorities in health care reform for the new Obama administration and Congress.
The task force identified five priorities: reducing obesity, tort reform, reforming the payment system to reward value, building the health care workforce with a focus on primary care, and universal health insurance with a requirement to obtain coverage (Wall Street Journal, 11/24).
