The Affordable Care Act, often referred to as Obamacare, has created and will continue to create both winners and losers in the market. In this video, The Motley Fool's Erin Miller talks with Fool contributor Keith Speights about which technology stocks are positioned to win as a result of the legislation.
Keith explains how one part of Obamacare -- the HITECH Act -- benefits health-care technology companies athenahealth (NASDAQ:ATHN) and Cerner (NASDAQ:CERN). Another important component of the legislation relates to Accountable Care Organizations, or ACOs. Keith sees McKesson (NYSE:MCK) as a likely winner from the emergence of ACOs. (NASDAQ:MDAS)
