In an op-ed in The Buffalo News, Michael W. Cropp, president and CEO of Independent Health, wrote that although the Affordable Care Act has generated a lot of talk about health care reform, the issue is not just about health care coverage but also about improving the health of communities. Cropp stresses the importance of accountability, writing, “Communities with the broadest engagement of people taking accountability for their health and promoting healthier lifestyles will be the winners in terms of driving a more vital population and stronger economy.”
