7 Healthcare Trends to Watch

McGuireWoods healthcare department chairman and publisher of Becker’s Healthcare (and one of the best minds in healthcare business right now) Scott Becker shares what he sees as the seven biggest trends in healthcare.  They are:

  1. The Cost / Benefit tradeoff of healthcare reform
  2. Growth in high-deductible health plans
  3. PPACA and balancing freedom & religion
  4. Uncertainty of insurance subsidies
  5. Politics where “The end justifies the means”.
  6. Broad agreement on PPACA provisions pre-existing conditions
  7. Continued growth and consolidation in the healthcare industry

All of these are salient and have dynamics affecting revenue cycle management.
