The article discusses the national health reform law in the U.S. It is stated that the reform law is filled with ideas that are intended to gradually fix the incentives in healthcare delivery so hospitals and physicians are rewarded for the delivery of better care for less money. The U.S. Federal Trade Commission, the U.S. Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) and the U.S. Department of Health & Human Services are planning to conduct a workshop regarding this issue at the CMS headquarters in Baltimore, Maryland, on October 5, 2010.
