About the Webinar

The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act is the law of the land. However, many in Congress would like to block it. Or at the very least, amend it. As the Obama administration continues to implement the reform law, what can the healthcare industry expect from the new Republican-led House of Representatives? And what are some other issues likely to command attention on Capitol Hill?

Attend this editorial webcast and hear answers to these questions:

  • As the healthcare industry navigates its way through the implementation of health reform, what are some top policy priorities in 2011?
  • What are some concerns regarding the push toward accountable care organizations?
  • Should the industry expect any regulatory surprises in the next year? If so, which sectors would be most affected?
