Baroma, Inc. is determined to be the catalyst for change to a better system of healthcare delivery by enriching the health of our communities though the coordination, integration and accountability of care.
As lawmakers search for ways to reduce the national deficit, Medicare is deemed a prime target. Why? The cost of programs for the elderly and disabled Americans is steadily increasing. As the baby boomers age into the Medicare population, these expenditures are expected to grow. In 2011 healthcare represented 17.6% of GDP. Bloomberg estimates that by 2021 the number will increase to 20%. This is where Baroma’s management is confident of its future earnings.
ACOs may be the disruptive sleeping giant of health care reform. The professional experience of Baroma’s management team has identified that at-least 20% of health care expenses are unneeded or redundant. An ACO, as envisioned in the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA – also known ObamaCare) puts the Primary Care Physician entity at the center of influence, yet most organized physician groups have no ability to sustain the interim working capital requirements to achieve an ACO agreement with CMS.
