A health plan for MA-based Partners Healthcare System Inc.

Boston Globe, June 14, 2010

Partners HealthCare System Inc. will try to slow the rise of medical costs in the coming year by trimming hospital budgets, working with payers to find shared savings, and applying for federal pilot programs that offer innovative ways to provide and pay for healthcare, its new chief executive told the Boston Globe. The focus on lowering costs will be part of a larger campaign by the hospital and doctors network to boost quality and efficiency and make healthcare less "transactional," said Gary L. Gottlieb, MD.
