PricewaterhouseCoopers LLP today launched a new website for their Health Industries practice – www.pwc.com/healthreform – which will serve as a central point of access for PricewaterhouseCoopers' latest insight and analysis on the implications of health reform for health organizations including insurers, physicians, hospitals and other providers, pharmaceutical and life sciences companies and employers.
"Embedded within the Health Care and Education Affordability Reconciliation Act of 2010, signed into law on March 30, is a blueprint for a new health system," said Kelly A. Barnes, U.S. health industries leader, PricewaterhouseCoopers. "The implications of this new, comprehensive law – including new taxes, regulations and administrative deadlines – present opportunities and challenges that will affect each of the sectors in the health industries in different ways. Health executives will have to act quickly to plan for the changes ahead and position their organizations for the post-reform world."
Key features of the new website include:
- Up-to-date analysis of health industry sector implications and tax changes developed by PricewaterhouseCoopers' Health Research Institute, Washington National Tax Practice, and Human Resource Services practice.
- Webcasts exploring key provisions of health reform, including new care models, accompanying reimbursement changes, and health IT.
- Guide to PricewaterhouseCoopers' health reform industry specialists.
- Link to additional thought leadership and perspectives on the changing health system.
The website will be regularly updated with new insight and sector summaries offering deeper analysis and cross-sector implications and announcement of upcoming events.
