Redefining the H In formal and information communications with students through local and national forums, they request information and guidance on what is next in the healthcare transformation and how should they prepare. Healthcare observers usually focus on providers that have the greatest impact on national healthcare expenditures as indicated by CMS hospitals (32 percent share) and physicians and clinical services (20 percent share). An internal American Hospital Association document that forecasts President/CEO Rick Pollack s perspective on healthcare in ten years revealed six intriguing perspectives for academics to consider.
