In considering the long-term health of U.S. citizens, the Affordable Care Act’s intent is to solve two broad issues. First, control the unsustainable rise in healthcare costs. Second, the rise in healthcare costs cannot be contained without improving the overall health of the U.S. population. Hospitals must reach out to the populations they serve making an effort to manage their population’s health and well-being. Hospitals that use LightenUp4Life™ have addressed health management through integrated wellness programs and community building to engage and interact with the populations they serve.
