The focus of this presentation is on the most significant developments facing health care providers, payers and patients. Particular attention is devoted to the causes and consequences of the rapid growth in accountable care organizations (ACOs), medical homes, and multi-specialty health systems. The increasing importance of high quality nursing for health systems to be able to achieve critical quality metrics and cost containment is addressed. The talk concludes with an analysis of how Baby-Boomers, “Obamacare” and Medicare’s changing reimbursement models are accelerating the dramatic reshaping of health care organization, finance and delivery for all Americans (not just senior citizens).
