Mercy Medical Center's Brian Monsma, vice president of network development and accountable executive, pointed out that a key focus of the act is to better coordinate care and reduce overall cost.

"Providers, such as physicians, home care agencies, hospitals, and so on, are incented through components of the act to align closely, share information across episodes of care, and better coordinate care to deliver better outcomes at a lower cost," he said. "The reality for hospitals, one of the highest cost providers, is that less care will be provided in the hospital setting."
Most people would agree a hospital takes a team approach to care, as in doctors, nurses and other auxiliary staff. Monsma speculated that team-based care will increase significantly under Obamacare.
"Health coaches are being deployed in the inpatient and outpatient settings to work directly with patients and to help facilitate/coordinate team-based care," he said.
Monsma pointed out - under the Affordable Care Act - that means for those patients who do receive hospital services, they will experience a care process that better coordinates the pre- and post-hospital care resource.
"One particular focus is the continued reduction of patient re-admissions," he said.
"I think the most important changes brought about by the act for hospitals are both the expanded access to care and the care coordination focus," Monsma said.
Monsma pointed out people will be surprised to learn how expensive the act will be for hospitals.
"The technology and information capability necessary to be successful as the many components of the act are implemented over the next several years are significant and will be very costly," he said.
