Jim Diegel, the CEO of St. Charles Healthcare Systems, believes more innovative healthcare changes can occur, now that the Supreme Court has ruled on the Affordable Care Act (ACA). “The upholding of the ACA actually puts Oregon into the national spotlight. What we are doing is very innovative and will make our healthcare more effective. Some of the revenue streams will now materialize now as a result of the ACA is being upheld.
Diegel says the American Hospital Association and the Oregon Association of Hospitals supported the Affordable Care Act.
