Top 10 issues in health care for 2013: PwC

PricewaterhouseCoopers has identified the top ten issues in health care for 2013 in this white paper.  Here they are (paraphrased a little):

  1. How will states implement the Affordable Care Act (ACA)?
  2. How to provide care for dual eligibles (patients who qualify for both Medicare and Medicaid)?
  3. Will employers continue to offer health insurance?
  4. What role will consumers play?
  5. How will consumer ratings affect providers?
  6. How will providers transform care delivery?
  7. Will population health management trend take off?
  8. What role will mobile devices play?
  9. How will cost-effectiveness play into treatment decisions, such as prescribing new drugs?
  10. How will the excise tax affect medical devices?
