While the Obama's healthcare reform will undoubtedly result in a large influx of newly insured patients, there have been cuts to Medicare and several changes are being put into place to hold hospitals to higher quality standards. One change being enacted is an increase in transparency that will force hospitals to report infection rates in their hospitals. Medicare will also pay bonuses to hospitals that have less re-admission to help prevent doctors from prematurely releasing patients to free up beds. There will also be a new website that allows patients to compare data and outcomes of physicians, though it is unclear how comprehensive or valuable the site will be.

In news for the industry, there is a recent ongoing takeover attempt of Tenet Healthcare Corp. by Community Health Systems Inc. This attempt comes at a time where the hospital industry is still trying to pull itself up from the hurts of the recession in an economic environment that remains daunting for business. As of December 10th, Community Health Systems placed its takeover offer at $3.3 billion which Tenet sees as an undervalued bid.
