Welcome to the Columbia Business School Alumni Club of New York - Bottom-Lining Obamacare.

Bottom-Lining Obamacare.
What is the business-relevant impact of the Patient Protection and Affordability Care Act (the ACA) for the healthcare, business professional and investor communities? [CBSAC/NY event]

Colloquially known as Obamacare, the Patient Protection and Affordability Care Act (or the ACA), is the most comprehensive legislation to shape US healthcare since Medicare did so almost 50 years ago. As parts of the law continue to be implemented over time, stakeholders are now making meaningful strategic decisions to successfully position themselves for the future. Join our panel of experts from healthcare services, policy, and law as they discuss what implementing the ACA means for business in 2013 and beyond. In particular, panelists will address disruptive effects of:  
  •  The incoming health information exchanges (HIEs) and expanded coverage mandate
  •  Structural payment reform: the effects of value-based payments on productivity and institutional risk 
  •  Health information technology implementation and implications for business models            
  •  Consolidation in the industry and recent FTC antitrust involvement 
  •  Knock-on effects to the bottom-line of adjacent business sectors
