The enactment of the Patient Protection & Affordable Care Act (PPACA) has paved the way for the improvement of quality of care and accessibility to healthcare in the country. However, much deliberation has been given to its constitutionality and its effectiveness in reducing medical costs. Amidst these deliberations, strategies on how to deal with the PPACA seemed to be left in the background.
The bigger challenge is to come up with strategies in order to optimize your strategies and operations as PPACA rolls out. Are there strategies for reimbursement, key-cost protection, and all other issues concerning this act? The Knowledge Group has assembled a panel of key thought leaders and regulators to discuss the fundamentals and updates regarding this topic.
