PRLog - Jun. 12, 2014 - BOSTON -- David E. Williams has released a free ebook containing summaries of his interviews with all nine candidates for Governor of Massachusetts about healthcare policy. The book can be downloaded at http://healthbb.files.wordpress.com/2014/06/candidates-for-ma-governor-speak-on-healthcare-june-2014.pdf

Most of the candidates --including Charlie Baker and Don Berwick-- are well known in the healthcare world but even those with non-healthcare backgrounds have studied the issues and have credible ideas.

The same questions were asked of each candidate. The questions are are as follows:

Does Chapter 224 represent the right approach to addressing rising healthcare costs? If not, where does it miss the mark and what would you do differently?

Certain provider systems in Massachusetts are reimbursed significantly more than others for the same services even though there are virtually no differences in quality. Does the state have a part to play in addressing these disparities?

More than a dozen state agencies have a role in healthcare. Is there an opportunity to consolidate or rationalize them?

Government policy has encouraged adoption of electronic medical records. However many providers complain about the systems and the benefits have been slow to materialize. Should state government play a role in helping to realize the promise of health information technology?

Hepatitis C is 3 or 4 times more common than HIV. New drugs that can cure the infection are coming on the market this year but they are very expensive. What role should the state play in ensuring that residents are tested, linked to care, and have access to these new medications?

There are multiple healthcare related ballot questions. What are your thoughts about them?

How has your experience as [__________] prepared you to be Governor?

Much of the emphasis in healthcare reform is on adult patients. Is there a need for a specific focus on children’s health?

Is there anything you’d like to add?
