Regulatory Strategies: From Medicare to Meaningful Use
"If we do things right and be more efficient, eliminate waste and unnecessary cost, then although revenue may not increase, we can impact the cost of the delivery of care and provide care within the reimbursement."
This exclusive, original research and analysis offers key insight from top healthcare executives and clinical leaders, including:
- Less than half (48%) of respondents are even "somewhat prepared" to make the leap from fee-based payment to shared-risk payment—and 36% acknowledge they are not prepared at all.
- Fifty-seven percent of respondents expect to enter clinical affiliations or partnerships over the next three years in response to PPACA, reflecting the growing importance of care coordination in managing risk and population-health responsibilities.
- A significant majority of respondents expect their outpatient services (ambulatory, wellness, primary care, and community/home health) to increase over the next three years.
- While 40% of respondents do not expect to make staff reductions as a result of PPACA, those that do expect to make cuts are focusing on non–patient care areas, with nonclinical personnel at the top of the list.
