Ten years after the landmark legislation, Emanuel and Gluck lead a crowd of experts, policy-makers, doctors, and scholars as they evaluate the Affordable Care Act’s history so far.


The ACA at 10: Health Care Revolution

The Health Affairs Blog is running a short series, “The ACA at 10: Health Care Revolution,” published with support from the The Solomon Center for Health Law and Policy at Yale Law School and the Healthcare Transformation Institute at the University of Pennsylvania’s Perelman School of Medicine. The authors of the posts in the series will be featured, along with others, in the forthcoming book The Trillion Dollar Revolution, edited by Abbe R. Gluck of the Solomon Center and Ezekiel Emanuel of Healthcare Transformation Institute. Many of the authors participated in a landmark conference last year cosponsored by the two organizations. Links to the posts will be added as the articles become available.
