Post Election Edition of Digital Health Space


Riverside, California

A service of Digital Health Space for Providers

The re-election of Barak Obama was a cliff-hanger, and makes the implementation of the PPACA a likely scenario. It is possible there will be necessary amendments to the law. Many medical organizations are intent on this goal, including medical associations, hospital associations, provider organizations as well as many insurance companies.

At the time when this bill was passed into law it was not a bi-partisan agreement, leaving out advice and recommendations from almost half of the country's representatives.

The American Medical Association did a flip-flop at the last minute endorsing PPACA, however it may not have been a true representation of providers.
