Berwick's Top 7 Concerns About Healthcare Reform

Margaret Dick Tocknell, for HealthLeaders Media, July 18, 2012

Don Berwick, MD, may no longer be the administrator for the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services, but he's still very much involved in the business of healthcare reform.

Berwick, now a lecturer at Harvard Medical School's department of healthcare policy, spoke at a recent Health Affairs briefing on the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act. He has long championed changes in healthcare delivery, and says that with the Supreme Court decision to uphold the PPACA now behind us, healthcare stakeholders need to be vigilant in making sure that real healthcare reform continues.

With much of the national focus now on the November elections, Berwick explained that no matter which party wins the White House, he has seven worries about the continued implementation of healthcare reform.

There was a much simpler way and so much less cost. Berwick still does not get we cannot afford this reform and still provide our seniors and veterans with anything close to the current level of care. Take 20% out of hospitals and nursing home revenue and tell me it will be even close. God help us and Berwick is not our savior.
