Health Care Issues

Health Care Reform

The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA), effective March 23, 2010, represents the greatest change in U.S. health care since the adoption of the Medicare and Medicaid programs, and holds promise for increased access to care, greater quality and better value for health care expenditures. While this change presents challenges, it also presents opportunities - especially the opportunity for hospital leaders, in partnership with state and federal officials and other stakeholders, to transform the health care delivery system.
