Health Leaders Media released its annual HealthLeaders 20 list of individuals who make health care better and Governor Jim Douglas was among those recognized for his positive efforts to improve the American health care system.Health Leaders Media credited Douglas’ ability to bridge the partisan divide in health care, whether in Washington or in Montpelier, citing his work as chairman of the National Governors Association, the Vermont Blueprint for Health and Vermont’s 2006 Health Reform bill as examples of his leadership. The article notes that ‘In striking contrast to Congress, Vermont provides a great example of what Republicans and Democrats can achieve in healthcare when they agree upon a common goal. And perhaps no one better embodies that bipartisan spirit in the Green Mountain State than long-serving Republican Gov. Jim Douglas.’‘I am very proud of the efforts we’ve undertaken over the past eight years to improve the health and well-being of Vermonters,’ Governor Douglas said. ‘Our leadership has been recognized by many from the federal government, most recently with the recent announcement of the Multi-payer Advanced Primary Care Practice demonstration project, to publications like HealthLeaders Media.’In addition to being ranked the healthiest state in the nation two years in a row by the United Health Foundation, Vermont has received recognition by the National Committee for Health Quality (NCQA) for improving the quality of health care, the American Public Health Association and Partnership for Prevention for promoting wellness and prevention, and Surescripts for being the most improved state for e-prescribing in 2009.HealthLeaders Media is a division of HCPro, a leading multi-platform media company dedicated to meeting the business information needs of health care executives and professionals. It consists of the following entities: HealthLeaders magazine, HealthLeaders Media Online, HealthLeaders Media Rounds, HealthLeaders Media Breakthroughs, the HealthLeaders Media Intelligence Unit, and California HealthFax.
