AIDS Action Statement on Governor Patrick’s Health Reform Proposal

Posted Feb 17 2011 3:33pm

BOSTON, February 17, 2011— Statement by Rebecca Haag, AIDS Action President & CEO, on Governor Patrick’s Proposal To Create Accountable Care Organizations:

“AIDS Action Committee applauds Gov. Patrick for his bold plan to reduce health care costs. His proposal to create accountable care organizations will inevitably bend the treatment curve toward the model of chronic disease management that service organizations like AIDS Action have been practicing for years. We already know what lowers health costs and increases the quality of care — treating people not diseases. Care is prevention. That is the model our health care system needs to embrace and the current fiscal climate is an opportunity to transform the way we provide critical health, community wellness, and prevention services in Massachusetts.”
