Thomson Reuters publishes paper on latest lexicon of US healthcare reform -

Business information provider Thomson Reuters, US, has published a new paper called ‘Vocabulary of Healthcare Reform’. The paper seeks to explain the new reform terminology along with insights to augment the definitions of these terms.

In addition to comprehensive overview of the buzz words and acronyms surrounding the reform debate, the paper is also said to be packed with proprietary statistics and charts that further quantify the key healthcare reform issues in the US. These statistics include Insurance Status by State; National Hospital Performance Measures; Percentage of Employers Impacted by Excise Tax; and Growth of Electronic Medical Records.

According to a recent HCPlexus/Thomson Reuters National Physician Survey, even doctors have difficulty discriminating between terms such as an ACO and an HIE. Yet, acronyms like these, along with buzz words such as ‘individual mandate’ and ‘Cadillac tax’ continue to show up in headlines, political debates and boardrooms. The new paper is an effort to demystify the latest lexicon of healthcare reform.
