About this book

Healthcare Changes Reach Main Street: A Call to Action for Physicians provides guidance, examples, and information on processes and time lines for physicians based on the implementation of The Affordable Care Act (ACA) that was established in 2010.  This volume focuses on how geriatricians and other healthcare professionals can be engaged in responding to the roll-out of the ACA in their communities, and through this engagement assume leadership roles in local hospitals, healthcare organizations, and medical societies to advance quality improvement and new models of care for older adults.  In-depth chapters provide an update on quality improvement efforts at the state level, as well as changes in Medicaid financing and the significant impact this will have for older adults, particularly dual-eligibles.  Many elements of the ACA are yet to be rolled out and many healthcare decisions are yet to be made.  Healthcare Changes Reach Main Street: A Call to Action for Physicians will guide healthcare decision makers and help them to play a leadership role in advancing quality care for older adults in our changing healthcare environment.​

Reviews

From the book reviews:

“This book discusses the changes in geriatric healthcare in light of the Affordable Care Act. While the Affordable Care Act makes significant changes in all of U.S. medicine, this book focuses primarily on the geriatric aspects and those whose practice involves caring for older patients. The audience includes many groups of readers: geriatricians, primary care providers, policy makers, insurance actuaries, and the lay population who may have an interest in either the Affordable Care Act or geriatric issues.” (Vincent F. Carr, Doody’s Book Reviews, March, 2015)
