State of the Health of Chicago: October 14, 2017


In 2017, the dominant force in health care is the state of the legislation being developed in Washington regarding the future of the Affordable Care Act (which is complicated by several related issues in the Illinois government).  These forces are expected to affect the fundamental operations of many Chicago area health organization in a major way.

As many of the ramifications may represent a radical departure from the status quo, and may take several months to fully play out, these organizations must plan and operate under circumstances of high uncertainty.  Thus, this year, in addition to highlighting the legislation and its implications for the organizations, we seek to help equip them to operate successfully under such conditions of uncertainty.
