CQ Roll Call Releases Medicare Revolution: Profiting from Quality, Not Quantity

Washington, D.C. (May 6, 2015) – CQ Roll Call announced today the release of Medicare Revolution: Profiting from Quality, not Quantity ebook, written by Adriel Bettelheim and the CQ Roll Call health team.

The ebook examines at the twists and turns of the long journey for “doc fix” and health provider payments under the Affordable Care Act, otherwise known as Obamacare, and what happened in one of the biggest legislative achievements of 2015.

Bettelheim, the managing editor of the CQ health team, along with CQ HealthBeat associate editor Kerry Young and heath care policy writer Melissa Attias, guides readers through the new criteria and payment models, from penalizing doctors who don’t report quality measures to giving hospitals and health plans bonus payments for improved year-to-year performance.

The ebook also looks ahead to the impact of the change, exploring how the health care industry is reconfiguring itself and developing new delivery systems to adapt to this trend of value-based purchasing.

“The government’s shift from quantity to quality-based purchasing of health care has the potential to change the way medicine is practiced and will have ripple effects throughout the health supply chain,” said Bettelheim. “Congress’ recent decision to change the way Medicare pays doctors is the most obvious sign that lawmakers are serious about changing a system that’s been in place since the Great Society program.”

“CQ Roll Call’s trusted health care team Is sharing their expert knowledge to illuminate an issue that’s bedeviled Congress for years,” said Chief Content Officer David Ellis. “The so-called doc fix solution has triggered off a myriad of new challenges for health care professionals.”

Medicare Revolution: Profiting from Quality, not Quantity is available on Amazon, iBooks, Barnes & Noble and Kobo.
