Berwick's Top 7 Concerns About Healthcare Reform
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.
