In an informative speech at the recent Accountable Care Organizations Summit, Federal Trade Commission (FTC) Director of the Bureau of Competition Deborah Feinstein articulated her current thinking on many important issues for healthcare providers, including: Accountable Care Organizations, merger enforcement, remedies, and certain merger defenses.
