Look for a return to managed care as health care reform unfolds, said U.S. Rep. Bill Owens, D-Plattbsburgh.

“In my view, the next step in the process is we have to go to managed care type payments, so we’re not paying for procedures, we’re paying for management,” he said Friday during a roundtable discussion with medical device industry officials.

Joe Grohowski, chief executive officer of Praxis Technology in Kingsbury; Jessica Crawford, president of MedTech, a state trade organization; and JC Scott, executive vice president of AdvaMed, a national trade organization, also participated in the meeting.
