The eighth edition of Healthcare Acronyms & Terms provides new terms associated with implementation of the Affordable Care Act and the need for hospitals and health systems to provide high-quality, low-cost care in order to improve the health of entire populations. As healthcare organizations work to transform care they are considering partnerships, looking at cost-reduction strategies, and evaluating new ways to deliver customer-centered healthcare. This edition reflects new terms that have emerged due to these initiatives, as well as boardroom and industry trends.
This booklet is great for everyone, from the novice board member to the experienced physician leader. It can be a starting place for those new to the industry and an extension for those who have been navigating the terminology landscape for awhile.
