On President Trump’s first day in the Oval Office, he signed his first executive order aimed at dismantling the Affordable Care Act (ACA). While the proposed American Health Care Act failed to gain enough support to become law in late March, House Speaker Paul Ryan has said that continuing to push for an overhaul of the nation’s healthcare system remains a priority.
Most agree a full-scale replacement will take time, and new legislation wouldn’t have much impact this year as government rules for 2017 have already...

The status-quo has no place in the healthcare sector. Every healthcare organization is continuously adapting, modernizing internal processes and leveraging technology to meet the demands of an ever-evolving and ever-more-stringent regulatory environment. The stakes don’t get any higher; failure to comply with Joint Commission standards jeopardizes vital funding streams and, more importantly, compromises patient safety.

House Speaker Paul Ryan recently released a first draft of the American Health Care Act, the AHCA, which is designed to “repeal and replace” the Affordable Care Act, commonly referred to as Obamacare*. The bill has unleashed widespread debate focusing on the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office’s finding that the AHCA would add 14 million to the ranks of the uninsured by 2018, a figure that would swell to 24 million by 2026, unwinding the gains in coverage made under Obamacare.
