    In an era of "government redesign," no challenge is greater than health care. Costs are huge and growing fast. Our population is aging and the current payment incentives for the healthcare system seem to be part of the problem. But the good news is that Minnesota is on the cutting edge of experiments designed to get us all headed in the right direction. From Hennepin County to New Ulm to Willmar, Minnesotans are exploring ways to make our health care ... and health... better, even as we reduce costs and give people more direct control of their overall health. It's important work going on across our state and this program gives you a glimpse into the future possibilities.
