How Will My Organization Absorb the Influx of New Patients?
Tuesday, September 29 – 2:00 – 2:15 p.m. ET
Presenter: Kimberly N. Grant
The implementation of the Affordable Care Act (“ACA”) has forced U.S. health care organizations to think about how best to position themselves to take advantage of such a massive change. It has been estimated that the ACA will expand coverage to approximately 32 million individuals lawfully present in the United States. At the same time, the United States’ rapidly increasing aging population will account for an additional 15 more million seniors covered by Medicare. This incredible influx of elderly and newly insured patients is forcing an already overly burdened U.S. health care system to utilize and implement policies to adequately handle this expanded patient population. But how will health care organizations absorb this radical increase in potential patients? Many are exploring telehealth/telemedicine options as an integral component of their treatment paradigm. They also need to address where the additional health care professionals will come from if the United States is not producing sufficient numbers.
In the final installment of EBG’s Telehealth Crash Course series, we will explore the potential health care immigration issues that employers should be aware of, as well as immigrant options that are available to help health care organizations recruit the foreign talent required to keep pace with a changing landscape.
