Whatever the Republican efforts to kill the Affordable Care Act, some healthcare changes encouraged by the ACA that have particularly developed over the past few years will almost certainly continue, predicts The New York Times.

- Early intervention through much expanded community-health efforts that address the social determinants of health.
- Alternative payment models, such as bundled payments, in a continued move away from fee for service and to fee for value and outcomes.
- More emphasis on care coordination and team-based care, including better coordination between clinicians and outside social services.
