How will healthcare reform affect you? The answer is different for each person. However, one of the goals of healthcare reform is to address the fragmented nature of patient care by coordinating hospitals, primary care physicians and specialists into networks. This network of providers work together with payers to give you better service and care. Your doctor will communicate closely with your other health care providers to deliver high-quality care and meet your unique needs and preferences.

How will you benefit? You will benefit by receiving care from a team. In addition to your doctor, you may have other provides such as physician assistants or nurse practitioners that assist with your care. In addition, your doctor will work closely with any specialists you need to ensure that the care you receive reflects a care plan that you, your doctor and your specialist(s) agree upon. Better coordination of care can reduce duplicate procedures and expensive trips to the emergency department. This team-based approach to care improves quality by emphasizing preventive medicine, improving communication and providing better management of chronic diseases. Your healthcare team will work together to provide the right care at the right time in the right setting.
