This week seems like a good time to reflect back on 2012 and the healthcare industry. In a year full of newsworthy events, the Supreme Court’s ruling to uphold the Affordable Care Act stands out as one of the most notable. The high court’s decision ended speculation and provided forward direction and greater clarity for the healthcare industry.
The impact is felt widely throughout the industry and by all healthcare executives. I recently read an article by HealthLeaders about itssecond annual CFO Exchange. For the exchange, HealthLeaders brought together 30 finance leaders from hospitals and systems nationwide for a discussion about how their organizations were “tackling some of the more demanding healthcare mandates in history while maintaining a grip on their purse strings.”
