Monday night, a panel discussion called the “Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act: What Does It All Mean?” took place at McCoy Hall. It was an event opened to the public for a better understanding of what the affordable care act does to citizens. Professor of the College of Health Professions Michael Nowicki says people look at the act economically but that we also need to look at what the act does on quality.

– Professor Michael Nowicki

Panelist included Mary Ann Roser from the Austin American-Statesman, CIO for Seton Southwest Hospital, Mary Faria, and Executive Vice President of Clinical Systems at Seton Healthcare Gregory Sheff. Those who attended were able to ask questions that would relate their personal experience.
