Capital Spending Reflects New Era in Healthcare
Health Leaders Media

The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act is a game changer for hospitals and health systems, which are bracing for new reimbursement models based on value, the continued shift in patient volume from the inpatient to the outpatient setting, and the movement toward population health management.
