Possible HHS-Driven Changes After Failed Repeal of ACA

The repeal of the Affordable Care Act (ACA) may have failed, but that doesn’t mean we shouldn’t expect healthcare changes. During our recent #KareoChat, our host (Kareo’s own Dr. Tom @drtom_kareo) guided our discussion on what patients and providers can expect as the ACA changes under Health and Human Services (HHS) rule and the Trump administration, and how these changes can shape the future and direction of healthcare.

Tom Giannulli, M.D., M.S., is the chief medical information officer at Kareo. Dr. Tom is a respected innovator in the medical technology arena with more than 15 years of deep experience in mobile technology and medical software development. He holds an M.S. in biomedical engineering from the University of Utah and earned his M.D. from the University of Texas at Houston where he completed his residency in internal medicine.

#KareoChat participants discussed possible changes HHS and the Trump administration could still have in store for our healthcare system. Our conversation started by clarifying the power that HHS has over ACA changes, and moved on to include the different areas where we might expect to see changes .

Here’s the recap!
