Healthcare economic policies are changing rapidly since the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act was passed in 2010.

Today, there is a new focus on “bundled payments,” which reimburses based on specific clinical episodes rather than fees for service, with a heavy focus on clinical episodes that result in the highest costs, such as stroke.
