Enrollee populations are increasing, state revenues are declining, and many states face enormous Medicaid deficits. The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA) magnifies these challenges. PPACA's major coverage provisions do not begin until 2014, but many provisions—value based purchasing, cost containment, quality based payment, and accountable care organizations (ACOs)—are appearing now.

3M Health Information Systems has a team of experts that stays current with hundreds of regulatory and market-based healthcare initiatives. To see current initiatives and related 3M solutions, click a state in the list below.
