Benchmarks in Key Areas of Healthcare Activity and Growth

2011 Healthcare Benchmarks Yearbook:
Metrics, Measurements and Innovations

In 2010, healthcare reform moved from rhetoric to reality. The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA) mandates a range of patient-centered and accountable care models that seek to improve healthcare quality, safety and efficiency while reducing resource consumption and spend.

PPACA will reward organizations that reduce hospital readmissions, curb avoidable emergency room visits, manage health risk, improve care coordination, demonstrate quality and deploy health IT. 2011 Healthcare Benchmarks Yearbook: Metrics, Measurements and Innovation
