29 Aug Lebanon Democrat: Nancy Anness: Let’s fight to preserve the 340B program
Posted on August 29, 2016
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.
At Saint Thomas and Ascension, we have embraced this transformation because it’s the right thing to do for the communities we serve. Unfortunately, one of the biggest daily obstacles that we see to providing better care at a lower cost is the astronomical price increases of prescription drugs.
