Governor Pawlenty Announces Nation Leading Plans To Put Consumers In Control of Their Healthcare
Saint Paul Governor Tim Pawlenty today announced initiatives that will help consumers take control of their personal health care information, encourage more patient-directed spending decisions for state employees, and engage Minnesotans in health care policy discussions.
“Minnesota’s health care system must be market-driven, patient-centered, and quality-focused,” Governor Pawlenty said. “Minnesota took a giant step forward to transform our health care system this year. Now Minnesota will lead the nation in the development of portable personal health records and expanded consumer directed health care spending accounts for state employees.”
