News & Events

  • Improving health outcomes for our nation’s children requires coordinated care that promotes recommended health services, prevents unnecessary hospitalizations and bridges across the multiple systems serving children and families.

  • Washington, DC – November 11, 2014 - The National Institute for Health Care Management (NIHCM) Foundation has awarded four new grants totaling approximately $270,000 to support investigator-initiated health services research.

  • BlueCross BlueShield of Tennessee Health Foundation gives $1M to construct a neonatal abstinence syndrome treatment center. The Institute of Medicine and the National Research Council call attention to the surprisingly poor health profile of young adults.

  • Population aging and recent coverage expansions have fueled concerns about physician shortages in primary care, leading several influential groups to recommend that nurse practitioners take on a larger role.

  • Most children’s health system experience is limited to the pediatrician’s office, but those with chronic or complex medical needs often deal with care that is fragmented, duplicative and crisis-driven. This leads to stress on families and wasteful utilization.

  • Just 5 percent of the population accounts for 50 percent of national health spending. Behind these numbers are patients and families struggling with multiple chronic conditions, physical and mental impairments, and tremendous stress.
