The healthcare environment is experiencing many changes due to the implementation of the Affordable Care Act. This is the first time the healthcare sector has experienced such a large change impacting multiple healthcare components. The purpose of the Affordable Care Act is to reduce costs and increase patient care. Smart businesses are seeing increased opportunities due to the changes.
