Introduced  by  Sens.  ESPAILLAT,  PERKINS,  SAMPSON  --  read twice and
  ordered printed, and when printed to be committed to the Committee  on
  Commerce, Economic Development and Small Business

AN  ACT to amend the economic development law, in relation to the estab-
  lishment of the  New  York  state  task  force  on  health  care  cost
  reduction through entrepreneurial innovation

  THE  PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK, REPRESENTED IN SENATE AND ASSEM-
BLY, DO ENACT AS FOLLOWS:

  Section 1. The economic development law is amended  by  adding  a  new
section 139 to read as follows:
  S 139. NEW YORK STATE TASK FORCE ON HEALTH CARE COST REDUCTION THROUGH
ENTREPRENEURIAL  INNOVATION. 1. THE LEGISLATURE FINDS THAT OPPORTUNITIES
EXIST TO IMPROVE HEALTH CARE DELIVERY, AND  HEALTH  THROUGH  NONSURGICAL
AND  NON-PHARMACOLOGICAL MEANS BY ENCOURAGING COOPERATION OF HEALTH CARE
PROVIDERS, MANUFACTURERS, SERVICE PROVIDERS, RESEARCHERS  AND  ENGINEERS
TO  DEVELOP  INNOVATIVE  SOLUTIONS. BY DEVELOPING PRODUCTS THAT HELP OUR
SENIORS STAY IN THEIR HOMES LONGER, PEOPLE ON SPECIAL DIETS GET THE FOOD
THAT THEY NEED AT A COST THEY CAN AFFORD, OR ENABLING  REMOTE  EMERGENCY
WORKERS  TO  RESPOND MORE EFFECTIVELY, ULTIMATELY, HEALTH CARE COSTS ARE
REDUCED. THEREFORE, THE LEGISLATURE ESTABLISHES THE NEW YORK STATE  TASK
FORCE  ON  HEALTH CARE COST REDUCTION THROUGH ENTREPRENEURIAL INNOVATION
IN ORDER TO DEVELOP A COMPREHENSIVE STATEWIDE PLAN  FOR  DEVELOPMENT  OF
INDUSTRIES  THAT  DELIVER  PRODUCTS  AND  SERVICES TO REDUCE THE COST OF
HEALTH CARE  WHILE  CREATING  JOBS  AND  STIMULATING  ECONOMIC  ACTIVITY
THROUGHOUT THE STATE.
  2. THE DEPARTMENT, IN COOPERATION WITH THE DEPARTMENT OF HEALTH, SHALL
ESTABLISH A TASK FORCE TO UNDERTAKE AN ASSESSMENT OF CONDITIONS THAT ARE
TREATED IN THE HEALTH CARE SYSTEM WHERE COSTS ARE LOWERED THROUGH USE OF
CURRENTLY  AVAILABLE  OR NEW PRODUCTS OR SERVICES AND DEVELOP A PLAN FOR
NEW YORK STATE PUBLIC, NOT-FOR-PROFIT AND PRIVATE HEALTH CARE  PROVIDERS

 EXPLANATION--Matter in ITALICS (underscored) is new; matter in brackets
                      [ ] is old law to be omitted.
