Brace for IMPACT

On Monday the President signed into law Rep. Dave Camp's (R., MI) Improving Medicare Post-Acute Care Transformation (IMPACT) Act of 2014. According to a White House press release, the measure "creates a standardized Medicare assessment tool for comparing patient data across the various types of post-acute care settings for purposes of quality, payment, and discharge planning, and makes other changes to Medicare current law relating to post-acute care."
