BOHEMIA, NY, June 22 – “So-called Washington DC professionals have tackled the issue of health care reform and have failed miserably. It’s time for real health care pros to put in their two-cents worth,” said Dan Weber, president of the Association of Mature American Citizens.
The AMAC chief explained that qualified representatives from all stakeholders involved in health care including Doctors, Nurses, Hospitals, Health Insurance providers will participate in a series of online workshops. “They’ll offer experienced insight into all aspects of health care with a goal of producing realistic, alternative avenues of reform based, not on politics, but on their own knowledge and understanding of the issue.”
Doctors, nurses, hospital administrators, health insurance providers, drug company executives, experts from patient advocacy organizations, study groups and think tanks will provide expertise in a series of 15 independent working groups, each focused on specific facets of health care delivery, Weber explained.
“The participants will produce recommendations on solving problems or improving results. For example, one workshop will be entitled “How to cover people with pre-existing medical conditions,” he said.
No time limits are involved in the workshop process in order to ensure that the sessions are comprehensive and productive. “Our goal is to identify positive and workable solutions.”
“Until now government efforts to effect positive changes in our health care system have been failures for the most part because they were products of a political system. Our intent is to eliminate the element of politics and concentrate on the needs of those who provide health care services and those who use them.”
