"Given the fiscal standoff in Washington that triggered the sequester, we wanted to produce this video and an accompanying white paper as soon as possible," says Ken Perez, MedeAnalytics' director of healthcare policy and senior vice president of marketing. "The sequester will affect healthcare providers in a material way this year, and it's clear that deficit-reduction has entered into the calculus of reimbursement rate-setting for years to come."
