Colorado city a microcosm of efficient healthcare
To healthcare reformers, Grand Junction, CO, is a place that provides high-quality healthcare at a fraction of the regular price. The local HMO offers prenatal care to all women in the county. Doctors evaluate themselves partly on the cost-effectiveness of treatments they prescribe. Nurses often check on patients home from the hospital to help prevent relapses. With President Obama set to hold a town hall there, many experts hope Grand Junction will offer lessons to the rest of the country.
