What healthcare executives really think about regulation  

Healthcare stakeholders have heard it before: Regulation overload is public enemy No. 1 for hospital executives. However, the story is more nuanced than that.

A survey from healthcare consulting firm Advis seeks to better understand which regulations executives find most onerous and which they find beneficial. Advis surveyed 162 healthcare CEOs and other C-level executives. Here are five interesting findings:

  • When asked which healthcare regulations were most prohibitive to improving healthcare, the top answer was fraud and abuse laws.
  • This was followed closely by Medicare conditions of participation and state licensure laws, and limits on telehealth reimbursement.
  • More than half of the respondents were in favor of scrapping the three-day acute state requirement for Medicare's skilled nursing facility benefit.
  • Just over 53 percent of executives said they wanted a mandatory National Patient Identifier
  • Only 16 percent expected to see a Medicare for All or similar single payer system emerge in the next 10 years.
