Finding New Opportunities in Healthcare Reform
BY Inc. staff
Ellen Stang, CEO of ProgenyHealth, thinks that healthcare reform will create opportunities for new collaborations and clients.
00:10 Ellen Stang: With Obamacare, I think it's going to create a lot of opportunities in healthcare. For us, with more people having coverage now in the US, there's going to be a higher percentage of families that may have pre-term babies that now have insurance. And I think for us there's gonna be a lot of opportunities with the expansion of Medicaid for us to really impact those communities and those families and help support them through that. I think with some of the reform in healthcare, with the advent of a lot of companies becoming part of the ACO models, I think there's going to be a lot of opportunities for us to have different clients. Right now, we're focused on working with insurers. I think that's going to expand our possibilities to really collaborate directly with providers and hospitals, and we look forward to that. We're actually in some conversations regarding that right now. So I think that'll create more opportunities to expand our program and services.
