Resource guide for internists released by ACP
Date:6/30/2010

Washington A practical resource guide for internists on recently-enacted health care reform legislation, the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA), was released today by the American College of Physicians (ACP). An Internist's Practical Guide to Understanding Health System Reform was developed by ACP's Division of Governmental Affairs and Public Policy, a significant player in helping to shape this year's health care reform legislation.

"This 91-page document features the 'nuts and bolts' of the key provisions in the PPACA that we believe will be of particular interest to internists and their patients," noted J. Fred Ralston, Jr., MD, FACP, president of the American College of Physicians. "It is designed to be super-easy to use, with hyperlinks that will allow a reader to access and print the explanation of a key provision of the law. It is organized by the effective dates and subject matter."

Although emphasizing topics of particular interest to ACP members, the guide provides practical information intended to be useful to many others, including physicians in other specialties, consumers, and policy analysts. ACP is making the guide broadly available to the public for free download, and has authorized redistribution of its contents by non-profit groups with attribution to ACP.

The Internist's Guide features a two-page table of contents with hyperlinks that take viewers directly to provisions within the guide. They can access areas of interest by placing the cursor over given provisions in the table of contents, and clicking with the mouse. The document also is in a "searchable" format, which allows viewers to search for items of interest using key words and phrases.

The "Summary of Key Health System Reforms Affecting Patients" is a single page of key provisions affecting patients that is written in language that is intended to be understandable by much of the general public. Physicians are told that the
