While debate over the Affordable Care Act continues, the industry remains focused on providing high-quality, effective, cost-efficient care. With this focus, healthcare providers and suppliers continue on the path of value and quality reimbursement, bundled payments, clinical and financial integration, consumerism, and population health.
As a result, hospitals, physicians, and payers continue to face opportunities and challenges with changing reimbursement models, technology, operations, and delivery of care. This has resulted in industry consolidations: mergers, acquisitions, and financial and clinical relationships.
With no slowdown in sight, the industry continues to change – addressing organizational and service-line profitability, innovations in technology and delivery of care, enterprise risk and risk management, and return on investment.
