HealthLeaders Magazine;Jun2011, Vol. 14 Issue 6, p6
The author introduces the new role of nonprofit health systems in the face of payment reform expanding coverage. He says that such health systems are in a unique position to reinvest and grow to meet the new mission to keep communities healthy, since they are free from demands of returns to shareholders. He asserts that if they can support community wellness, lead accountable care organizations or create community-wide electronic health records, then few regulators will question their nonprofit status.
