In April 2014, we announced ACAView, a joint initiative with the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation to track ways the Affordable Care Act (ACA) may affect the practice patterns and economics of physicians and other care team members. Since then, our athenaResearch team has been monitoring the impact of health insurance coverage expansion on a monthly basis, mining insights from athenahealth’s cloud-based network of more than 62,000 providers and 55 million patients.The team is currently preparing their first annual report, due out this spring. (See previous quarterly report.) In advance of that release, Eben Harrell, executive editor of the Health Leadership Forum, sat down with Josh Gray, VP of athenaResearch, and Katherine Hempstead, Ph.d, director at RWJF, to go behind the scenes on the ACAView project, discuss the project’s most interesting findings to date, and much more.
