Hospitals, Insurance Companies, Pharmas: Who Benefits From the Affordable Care Act?

By Logan Lafferty

The U.S. Supreme Court’s recent decision upholding the major provisions of the Affordable Care Act (ACA) shocked many in and out of the healthcare industry…“Our assessment is that the Supreme Court decision on health reform will accelerate existing trends in healthcare and the marketplace,” says Dr. Patricia Simmons, executive medical director for Health Policy at the Mayo Clinic. Those trends include consolidation of facilities, new organizations that combine hospitals and insurance companies, increased accountability for metrics-driven results, and a strong focus on community outreach.
