Kevin Anderson - Monday, September 22, 2014

In BHM Healthcare Solutions' blog, a post by Abby Norman discusses 5 new trends in healthcare reimbursement. She first discusses how Accountable Care Organizations (ACOs) will in theory reduce the tendency of 'silos' in healthcare and will eventually keep the healthier patients out of the hospital. Second, she discusses how the traditional payment model of fee for service is fading. In addition, she talks about bundled payments, Medicare Advantage plans, and how technology is affecting the industry. To read more of her blog, please visit BHM's website by clicking here
