Attorney Chris Lockman is quoted in a September 17, 2018 article fromMainebizentitled "Healthcare Purchaser Alliance of Maine Taking Charge of Changes" about organizational changes. The article discusses the Alliance's new primary focus on value and providing the most benefit for its members. The Healthcare Purchaser Alliance of Maine has elevated the role of purchasers to better collaborate on buying power and is putting three new initiatives into effect, beginning Jan. 1: pharmaceutical expenses, variations in quality and the cost of outpatient hospital visits. As Verrill Dana is a purchaser member, Lockman is quoted in the article and says the new mission at the purchaser alliance "aligns well with Verrill Dana's commitment to emphasize value over cost, and select health plans providing the greatest overall benefit to our employees."
