A Modern Healthcare Internet survey conducted after this week's presidential election tapped a deep vein of anger over the effects of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, with a large group of respondents saying they had waited to see Tuesday's outcome before fully embracing the law.
Of the 829 people who responded to the survey, 67% said the reform law would have a negative impact on the bottom lines of their healthcare business. Only 33% said the law would have a positive impact.
A majority of respondents agreed that it would have been “better for your organization's bottom line” if Republican Mitt Romney had defeated President Barack Obama and raised the prospect of repealing the reform law. Nearly 57% agreed with that, while 31% disagreed and 12% were unsure.
