10 big healthcare business stories in 2015 [Special Report]

By Ilene MacDonald

2015 was a year that the impossible seemed to happen--after many delays, ICD-10 was finally implemented and the much-hated sustainable growth rate formula was repealed.

But the stories that struck a nerve with most of our readers weren't those attention-grabbing headlines that ran in FierceHealthcare and its sister publications. Instead the most well-read stories that FierceHealthcare ran this year involved a technique to relieve stress of nurses in the emergency rooms and emerging milliennial-driven healthcare changes.

So in this special report, we'll share our picks for the most notable stories in 2015--and see whether healthcare leaders hit the mark on their own predictions.
