Jolie Havens, a partner in the Vorys Columbus office and chair of the health care group, was included on Columbus Business First’s “20 People to Know in Health Care” List.  According to the paper, individuals on the list “are front and center in the industry.” Havens was selected for her work representing health care providers.

An interview with Havens was published and included the following question:

What is the biggest challenge for health care in 2015?  

“One of the biggest challenges for the industry going forward will be meeting the primary care needs in our country, particularly in rural areas, and especially with millions of new consumers obtaining health coverage through expanded Medicaid and the health insurance marketplaces. If primary care is to be the cornerstone of service delivery, both in the provision of clinical care and overall care coordination, additional steps should be considered to enhance the compensation, incentives and overall status of primary care beyond measures currently in place. Otherwise, implementation of a quality primary care model across the country may not be possible.”
