Jerry Brady on Health Care

 


Health care is national problem & needs national solution

    In visiting countless health care providers around Idaho during my campaign, I have been constantly learning how our state can foster a better healthcare system. There are five principles that form the core of my approach to our healthcare system:
  1. Adults need access to a primary care provider. If they have one, visits to emergency rooms and expensive operations later will decrease, along with state costs.
  2. The state needs to protect the viability of its hospitals. Non-profit and rural hospitals in particular constitute one of the cores of rural economic development.
  3. The state has an interest in insuring not only an adequately supply of doctors but also of nurses, paramedics and other health professionals.
  4. Health care is a national problem and needs a national solution.
