Session Description

In late 2010, these presenters were tasked with writing an article on the impact of the Affordable Care Act (ACA) on facility design. It quickly became clear that the political course of the ACA at that time was evolving too rapidly to draw definitive conclusions and, more importantly, there were far greater issues creating an impact on healthcare design than the political outcome of the ACA. This next generation of the study looks back over the subsequent nine years and reflects on the changes, and constants, during that period.
