CLIP: Intermountain Healthcare creates a nonprofit generic drug company (NPR)

Intermountain Healthcare is partnering with several health systems to create a nonprofit generic drug company. In an interview with NPR’s Marketplace, Intermountain CEO Marc Harrison, MD, said the venture is about the patient. In five years’ time, Harrison hopes the new group will be able to serve thousands of hospitals, mitigate artificial drug shortages and help people better afford their medications.
