In the months since the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA) was enacted, organizations have been inundated with law and consulting firm client advisories, articles and seminars—all focused on summarizing the new health care reform law. But to what extent have those articles and seminars provided a clear plan of action and said clearly, "Do this"?

This checklist provides that action plan and will help hospital and health system executives make sense of the new health care reform law, and translate it into specific action steps for their institution.

The checklist provides hospital and health system executive leadership with concise implementation recommendations to address each of the key themes of the health care reform law including:

  • fraud and abuse enforcement
  • insurance reforms
  • reimbursement
  • employment matters
  • tax-exempt status
  • information technology
  • corporate governance
  • strategic alliances

The checklist is intended to serve as a “yardstick” by which hospital and health system executives can measure their progress in responding to health system reform changes.
