Obama team offers opportunities to shape health reform

December 12, 2008

In keeping with techniques it initiated during the campaign, President-elect Barack Obama's transition team is encouraging wide participation in the development of its health care reform agenda. Hospital employees and others can "join the discussion" at www.change.gov, or sign up to lead a health care discussion this month in their community. The AHA encourages hospitals to share how they stand ready to engage in serious efforts around health care reform, provide key health and economic benefits to their communities in these challenging times, and would be seriously harmed by reductions in Medicare and Medicaid funding in this economic climate.
