    Healthcare Reform

    Understanding healthcare reform
    The 2010 Affordable Care Act expands healthcare coverage to 32 million people; builds on the employer-based insurance system; initiates major insurance reforms; sets in motion future payment and delivery system reforms; and increases the focus on wellness and prevention.

    ASHRM is an influential voice on issues related to risk management and patient safety and wants to be your primary source to help you understand health reform. This toolkit may assist you in navigating through health reform as it pertains to you, the health care risk management professional.
