How has American healthcare fared since the Affordable Care Act (ACA) was passed? That’s the wide-ranging question that Steven Brill’s new book “America’s Bitter Pill” strives to answer, and Brill’s response is more positive than one might expect.
Brill explores the impact of America’s evolving healthcare system on patients, providers and insurers, including a glimpse into Partners’ own efforts to redesign health care. In his research for the book, Brill spoke with Partners CEO and president Dr. Gary Gottlieb about our 2011 agreement with Blue Cross Blue Shield – a promise to improve quality while lowering costs.
