Health Reform: From Insights to Strategies, A Variety of Perspectives

Feb 1, 2011
The Affordable Care Act (health reform) has significant implications for health care financing, service delivery, coverage, access, quality, and ultimately the well-being of all Georgians. For the past year, the Georgia Health Policy Center, housed within Georgia State University's Andrew Young School of Policy Studies, has been studying health reform and seeking ways to translate what we learn so that it can be used by key stakeholders to make informed decisions. To discern how the Act might specifically affect Georgia's health care system, we chose to commemorate our 15-year anniversary by conducting strategic consultations of the likely impact of health reform on a diverse group of stakeholders: provider organizations, rural and urban community-based groups, small and large businesses, professional associations, and local and state government entities. Following these consultations, we hosted an all-day Health Reform Symposium to share discoveries and potential implications for a broader array of organizations and communities throughout the state.
