The healthcare sector is heavily impacted by the recent changes associated with the Affordable Care Act. Profitability of companies depends on efficient operations and operational efficiency. Additionally, the ability to be adequately reimbursed for services provided is increasingly difficult. Also, with the proposed changes in the way healthcare entities will be reimbursed, with an emphasis on preventive care, outpatient services, and reduced length of stay, there will be challenges and opportunities for healthcare entities as they implement these changes.
