Here’s another way Obamacare is changing U.S. healthcare for the better
Los Angeles Times

The Affordable Care Act aimed to go well beyond merely making health insurance more accessible to millions of people who couldn’t buy it in the individual insurance market; many provisions were designed to fundamentally change for the better how healthcare is delivered in the country. A new study shows one way it’s working by improving patient outcomes in a sample of New York hospitals.

President Obama alluded to that aspect of the 2010 law in a speech Tuesday in Washington, telling his audience that the Affordable Care Act is “now part of the fabric of how we care for one another. … There is a reality that people on the ground day to day are experiencing. Their lives are better.”
