SALT LAKE CITY (AP) -- Utah Gov. Gary Herbert and other state leaders will participate in a health care forum this week.
Business leaders say Utah's health system is better than most states' but is still plagued by rising costs and misaligned priorities.
The Salt Lake Chamber and United Way will hold a first-of-its-kind Utah Health Forum on Wednesday at the Salt Palace Convention Center.
The gathering is intended to build on momentum for reform and elevate the discussion across a broader spectrum.
Utah leaders hope to create a more simple and efficient system by consensus.
