Abstract

During the forty-year life of the Journal of Ambulatory Care Management, revolutionary transformations have occurred in the roles of existing health professions, as has the emergence of new categories of health professionals. This paper specifies the reasons for these dramatic changes, the new types of health care professions that have emerged, changes in existing professions, and suggestions of future directions. Many of these changes will be impacted by what occurs in Washington, DC in the debate over the Accountable Care Act.
