Healthcare reform seen as continuing regardless of election results
Modern Healthcare

Healthcare reform will continue no matter what happens with next month’s elections, agreed a panel of experts speaking Monday at the MGMA-ACMPE annual conference in San Antonio. What the panelists didn’t agree on were scope-of-practice issues and the role of physicians in providing team-based care. Moderated by MGMA-ACMPE President and CEO Dr. Susan Turney, the program was titled “The State of the Healthcare Industry” and included speakers representing employers, hospitals, payers and physicians who answered questions including the impact of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act and the rise of healthcare consumerism.
