Leading Policy Agenda Item
Recognize the Importance and Value of Medical Innovation
New therapies for advancements in personalized medicine, vaccines and pain management are curing previously incurable diseases and transforming care delivery to patients. The innovations limit the growth of health care costs overall by effectively treating patients and minimalizing hospitalizations. Many companies in our state research and develop these life-saving therapies, while providing high-paying jobs to Tennesseans.
We must continue to support the industry that brings cures to the market and also support the accessibility of these medicines and therapies to patients.
