When I read Dan Goldberg’s article, New Jersey hospitals reach out to patients to reduce ER visits, I did a happy dance. In the midst of all the bad press that the Affordable Care Act implementation has been getting, this piece offers a glimmer of hope. It’s such a well-written article showing how doctors and hospital systems in New Jersey are really trying to address the cost issues in our
sick care healthcare system. Not only are they sharing data, they’re providing better patient care AND saving money.
So, yes the Affordable Care Act is changing the system for the better.
