A networking group in California polled health care executives and found that many agree with the statement that the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act of 2010 (PPACA) “got us one step closer to Medicare for all.”
The group, the Adaptive Business Leaders Organization, Santa Ana, Calif., also found that participating executives in the health insurance and life sciences sectors are much more skeptical about PPACA than participating executives who are involving with providing health care or with health information technology (IT).
The group has developed a report based on responses from 249 executives.
About 44% of the participants are involved with providing health care, and 21% are at life sciences organizations. Another 16% are at services proviers, 10% at health IT organizations, and 9% at “payers.”
The group found that 35% of all participants said they agreed with the prediction that PPACA will lead to PPACA for all, or some kind of government-run health care system.
