This paper is designed to continue the conversation around the concepts discussed in AHA's "Hospitals and Care Systems of the Future", and the AHA Workforce Center's "Workforce Roles in a Redesigned Primary Care Model" and "Reconfiguring the Bedside Care Team of the Future" and explore them in greater depth.
The American Hospital Association (AHA) recently convened a roundtable (for a list of participants, see Appendix B) to discuss whether the traditional bedside care team could be reconfigured to meet the imminent needs of the U. S. population. These needs emanate from a more culturally and socio-economically diverse population, patients experiencing acute episodes with multiple conditions, and an aging population requiring more health care services. Driving the need for change is the reality that, in 2014, more than 25 million new patients will enter the U.S. health care system as a result of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (ACA).
