Cost and care challenges coupled with ceaseless healthcare policy and regulatory changes are keeping industry and government on the move. As the marketplace evolves in response to clinical and financial changes triggered by healthcare reform, government is tasked with monitoring, modifying, managing and enforcing the legislation. The Federal government has always been challenged with broad healthcare industry changes and these developments have become more granular with more specific patient, clinician and reimbursement perspectives along the way.
Patient Care Delivery Clinical And Business Model Changes Impact Reimbursement
Examples of changes in the marketplace which have spurred Federal and State governments to take further action as a result of healthcare reform measures include:
- Health plans withdrawing from state health exchanges
- New physician practice, health system and managed care organization business models
- Continual revisions to Federal and State reimbursement arrangements in multiple sectors
Technology Is Transforming Healthcare And Regulatory Oversight Is Necessary
Widespread adoption of technology has created enormous innovation and change which government agencies have found challenging to keep up with. Examples include telemedicine / telehealth, IoT, mobile, privacy / security of patient information, growing varieties of social media venues and their use by consumers / patients, clinicians, insurers, healthcare marketers and other stakeholders. Administration, privacy, security, standardization, technical quality assurance and regulatory authority are some of the key considerations Federal and State lawmakers are dealing with as technology makes rapid inroads across the continuum of care.
