One of Music City’s largest software companies has chosen Rocket City as the launch pad for its second location. Atiba Software LLC is searching for office space in Huntsville, Alabama, Atiba CEO JJ Rosen said, with plans to open in the next four to six months. The new office is expected to employ eight to 12 people. Atiba currently has two employees working remotely in Huntsville. The move is partially an effort to access an untapped talent pool, Rosen said, and is another sign of how Nashville’s tight labor market is prompting some companies to find creative ways to recruit workers.

On July 9, the Affordable Care Act's constitutionality was debated in the US Court of Appeals. How did healthcare stocks react?
Shares of health-care services company HCA Healthcare Inc. rose 1.6% in premarket trade Wednesday after analysts at Goldman Sachs upgraded the company's stock to buy from neutral and increased their price target to $160 from $147. In a Wednesday note to clients, analysts led by Stephen Tanal said they were confident that HCA had "sufficient bargaining power at the local level to mitigate the effects of any potential negative policy actions taken by government agencies." They said their call was unrelated to the latest legal challenge to the Affordable Care Act, a lawsuit brought by 20 state attorneys general challenging the constitutionality of the ACA's individual mandate without its penalty on people who do not have coverage. "Although the ongoing legal challenge to ACA presents risk, we believe any adverse ruling on the severability of the individual mandate from the balance of ACA will be appealed to the SCOTUS, deferring any potential impact for at least another year," they wrote. Shares of HCA have gained 8.5% in the year to date through Tuesday, while the S&P 500 has gained 18.9%.

President Donald Trump will sign an executive order aimed at requiring hospitals to be more transparent about prices before charging patients for healthcare services, Secretary of Health and Human Services Alex Azar said on Monday. The executive order will direct HHS to issue a rule that will mandate hospitals to disclose in an "easy-to-read, patient-friendly format" what prices patients and insurers will actually end up paying, Azar said. The order will ultimately require healthcare providers and insurers to provide patients with information about the out-of-pocket costs they'll face before they receive healthcare services, he said.
