Instead of Fighting Health-Care Change, Embrace It

The health-care delivery system is undergoing a powerful and revolutionary transformation, one that will ride changes in technology to  both improve outcomes and cut costs, according to a column published in the Tampa Bay Times.

The authors -- Dr. Stephen Klasko, CEO of USF Health, and Rick Homans, president and CEO of the Tampa Hillsborough Economic Development Corporation -- say the rewards will go to the community that embraces the change and accelerates it, instead of fighting it. They argue that Tampa Bay is in a great position to do that, if everyone collaborates.

Originally founded in December 2006 as an independent grassroots publication dedicated to coverage of health issues in Florida, Health News Florida was acquired by WUSF Public Media in September 2012.
