Share this:

Massachusetts Gov. Charlie Baker has established the Digital Healthcare Council to guide policy about the  burgeoning digital healthcare industry in the state, which is an internationally renown technology center.

The advisory council, which stems from  the Massachusetts Digital Health Initiative, launched last January, will bring together leaders from academia, government, healthcare delivery, insurance, life sciences, medical devices  to discuss how digital technology can improve healthcare, increase the number of high-paying jobs in the state and reduce  healthcare costs.

“For Massachusetts to become a national leader in digital health, we need to continue to build on the momentum our Digital Health Initiative has already produced,” said Governor Baker. “This council will collaborate to move past barriers in the healthcare industry and solve significant challenges to make advances in patient care, lower healthcare costs and address public health crises, like the opioid epidemic.”
