After hosting just the first of what will be 10 roundtables statewide on health care, state Sen. Tony Lourey said Monday he already feels good about his hunch that Minnesota's focus has to be holistic. If we continue just a purely medical approach to delivering health care, it's very difficult to actually get people healthier and provide health for our community.
And that was really embraced by the health care players here in Duluth. And we need to pay attention to that.
And that's why it was refreshing to hear unanimity that, 'Yeah, we need to actually break down the silos and work collaboratively together in a team-based approach to bring about health. One idea is bringing Minnesota in line with federal patient-privacy laws. Our state is one of only two with standards and requirements more stringent than those handed down from D. They're so stringent here that medical facilities and others caring for the same patients have trouble sharing information. The additional burdens here, they're not working for our patients and our systems. They're really getting in the way.
Another idea is broadening student-loan forgiveness and other measures to encourage more college students to pursue careers in rural areas, in behavioral health, and in other now-underserved and understaffed health care areas. The goal of his roundtables, he said, is to generate ideas to improve access and the ability to pay for health care in Minnesota. Politics has made the topic enormously difficult. All the more reason to search for common ground. So I just thought it was really important to get out there and talk.
With the health of Minnesotans statewide hinging on such conversations, talking can be encouraged and embraced statewide - like it was this week here in Duluth. Trending Articles. Crime and Courts.
