Abstract

The key to understanding where we are going is to learn from where we have been. Unprecedented changes in the health care system were introduced through the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, but we have not stopped to measure the progress we have made in reaching the Act’s initial goals. We need to take an inventory of the current status of the health system, including the impact of the Affordable Care Act before considering future health reform. Making recommendations to encourage commonsense health legislation and looking beyond bipartisan views on health care is important to design a robust health care system. The public health significance of pursuing critical national health reform is that we can ensure the health and wellness of individuals and communities through all echelons of the government. Vital issues like access to care, health disparities, financing care, and quality of care can be addressed and corrected.
