One novel solution is coming from hospitals. A coalition of approximately 300 hospitals, led by Intermountain Healthcare in Salt Lake City, is now getting into the business of manufacturing generic drugs.9 Publicly, the coalition will not say which drugs it is targeting, although it has implied that it plans to focus on the drugs with tenuous supply chains.. These hospitals are now in the process of forming a nonprofit company; this solution is intriguing enough that the Department of Veterans Affairs has expressed an interest in participating. As A. Marc Harrison, MD, president and chief executive officer (CEO) of Intermountain Healthcare, said, This is a shot across the bow of the bad guys.

According to Ed Boyd, executive director of Oregon Accreditation Alliance (and chief of police, retired), Accreditation means that an agency, their operations, management, policies and procedures meet the best practices the industry has to offer. The accreditation process in general is a progressive and contemporary way of helping law enforcement agencies evaluate and improve their overall performance and provides formal and professional recognition that an organization meets or exceeds best practice expectations of service and quality in the profession. To be accredited, an agency must meet 102 professional standards comprised of over 400 separate requirements contained within those standards. It also, in my opinion, takes courage for an organization to take on the rigorous accreditation process. Anytime the chief executive officer of an organization invites an outside third party into their department to review and inspect everything associated with their operations and render an opinion as ...

Phil Castle, The Business Times. The Grand Junction Area Chamber of Commerce opposes a ballot measure that would implement a single-payer health insurance system in Colorado as a costly and risky plan that could hurt businesses and affect medical care.. The chamber hosted a meeting to outline its position on Amendment 69 and invited a hospital executive, business owner and retiree to voice their concerns.. Chamber officials also asked for help in campaigning against the measure in the upcoming election. Its going to take a pretty grass-roots effort to get the word out about what this really does, said Diane Schwenke, the president and chief executive officer of the chamber.. If approved, Amendment 69 would implement a comprehensive health care system funded by a payroll tax of 6.67 percent for employers and 3.33 percent for employees. Self-employed people would pay 10 percent of their net income. People would still choose their medical providers, but their bills would be paid by the so-called ...
