Legislature To Consider Bill To Encourage Team-Based Care
This week, state lawmakers will consider a bill that seeks to encourage health care providers to work in teams and define a "patient-centered medical home." Physician groups and other supporters say the measure would increase focus on prevention and cost-efficiency, rather than onÂ fragmented care. However, opponents argue that the measure could threaten health data privacy and ease minors' access to abortion and contraception.
