Georgia’s Health Care Reform Task Force will hold its third public meeting, hosted by Tift Regional Medical Center, at 10 a.m. Monday, July 10. The group will hear from health-care experts and is evaluating reforms to enable rural communities to develop high-performance health-care systems. “Georgia’s health-care system demands reforms. Statewide, costs are too high — and increasing by too much, too quickly — while access and choices for care are too limited,” said Lt. Gov. Casey Cagle. “It is time for Georgia to act on behalf of all our patients, families, and communities across all geographic regions of our state.” Cagle said the task force is committed to working collaboratively with stakeholders to find solutions that reduce and control the costs of care, that modernize delivery models to better match patients’ needs and that encourage innovation and market competition.
