About MN HealthBasics

Minnesota HealthBasics is a collaboration of leaders from Medica, TwinWest Chamber of Commerce, Minnesota Building Construction and Trades Council, the Minneapolis Regional Chamber of Commerce and North Memorial Health Care.

HealthBasics is a non-partisan group. There is no policy agenda. The conversations, articles and ideas presented throughout this site do not necessarily reflect the views of HealthBasics, the leaders who created HealthBasics or the organizations they represent.

MN HealthBasics is collecting and sharing thought-provoking articles that offer diverse insights into some of the challenges and opportunities facing our health care system. The articles are available on the new Perspectives page. We hope you’ll share your thoughts with us on Facebook and Twitter.
