Anthony Grimaldi, MA, CASAC, Senior Vice President, BHM Healthcare Solutions, explains the changes to the way that providers must deliver healthcare. He describes 5 fundamental differences in healthcare delivery following the Affordable Care Act:

1) Patient Centricity: The doctor-patient relationship will need to change in order to get the patient more engaged

2) Revenue Preservation: Doctors will have to move away from the fee-for-service in order to avoid penalties

3) Total Cost of Care: Providers will have to have a better grasp on the services rendered in order to control the total cost of care

4) Patient Outcomes and Transparency: Information about the success of a delivery system will be public and the providers will be rated based on this outcome, which in turn, will affect compensation

5) Documentation and Transparency: Delivery systems will have to show that the quality of their care is well documented with a measurable outcome
