25 Sep Midland Daily News: The drug discount program (340B) saves lives
The healthcare industry is undergoing dramatic transformation as we shift from fee-for-service reimbursement to a fee-for-value payment system, promoting the value and outcome of the healthcare services we deliver. We’re focused on providing the best care for the people we serve, measuring the efficiency of our healthcare delivery and striving to improve outcomes at a lower cost.
The Mid-Michigan ministries of Ascension (representing Genesys Health System, St. Mary’s of Michigan and St. Joseph Health System in Tawas) have embraced this transformation because it’s the right thing to do for the communities we serve. Unfortunately, a big daily obstacle that we see to providing better care at a lower cost is the rapid price increases of prescription drugs.
