Are Community Hospitals Obsolete?
“It hasn’t been easy street. The CEO’s plate was full with Affordable Care Act, False Claims Act, physician employment, cyber-security, meaningful use, shared savings programs, insurer negotiations, sequester cuts and mandatory reporting to Medicare dominating a busy agenda. But in markets where the population was growing, employers were supportive, insurers collaborative, physicians engaged and the public’s trust strong, hospitals were able to power through. Becoming obsolete was not a concern.
“But 2018 could be different.”
Paul Keckley, Jan. 29, 2018
