Health Service Overhaul Prompts Questions

Sponsored by:

Health care experts met in San Diego Friday to offer their suggestions on a sweeping plan to overhaul California´s health and human services.

The plan is part of Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger´s call to revamp state government in order to cut costs and improve efficiency.

The governor´s commission heard testimony today from representatives of health-service agencies, patient advocacy groups and health care providers.

Most spoke in favor of the proposed changes, but several raised concerns about calls to consolidate services and boost computer-based services.

Some fear a plan to have applications processed over the Internet, for example, would hurt those Californians who do not have computers or the skills to use them.
