Article Out Loud - Healthcare Reform: Major Effects on Hospital Preparedness

By THEODORE (TED) TULLY, An Article Out Loud Flashback from the Domestic Preparedness Journal, May 02, 2012. 

No matter what the Supreme Court decides on the constitutionality of the healthcare reform act, U.S. hospitals must prepare now for major changes in their planning, everyday operations, and both budgetary and personnel resources. Many of those changes may be costly. Most will be time-consuming and/or difficult to implement. But in the long term, almost all will benefit - the hospitals themselves, their medical staff, and -most important of all - their patients.
