In the months since the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act was enacted, hospital and health system senior management have been inundated with advisories, articles, and seminars summarizing the provisions of the health care reform law and its cadre of new requirements. But until now, very little has been written explaining exactly what actions hospital and health system executives should evaluate and implement.
Recognizing the need for clear guidance in this area, global law firm McDermott Will & Emery has issued “Health System Reform: An Implementation Checklist for Hospitals.” This guide is designed as a desktop reference for hospital and health system management who are now coming to grips with the most sweeping changes to U.S. health care in a generation.
Specifically, the checklist provides senior management with implementation recommendations to address key themes of the health care reform law: fraud and abuse enforcement, insurance reforms, reimbursement, employment matters, tax-exempt status, information technology, corporate governance and, especially, strategic alliances.
