The Impact of Health Reform on Health Delivery Organizations
June 3, 2010, 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm CDT
Erica Drazen, Managing Director for Emerging Practices, and Jordan Battani, Principal Researcher, Health Plans, CSC. While the most obvious impact of health reform is that 32 million more people will have coverage and create a surge in demand for care, there are other, less discussed provisions that health delivery organizations need to prepare for now. For example, starting in 2012, hospitals can establish accountable care organizations and share savings with CMS, all Medicare reimbursement will be subject to adjustment based on quality outcomes and preventable readmissions starting in 2013, and additional penalties based on the rate of hospital acquired conditions will be added in 2014.
