News & Events

  • One percent of the U.S. population accounts for nearly 23 percent of overall health care spending, and 5 percent are responsible for a full 50 percent of spending. In stark contrast, the lowest-spending half of the population generates less than 3 percent of total spending—or only about $234 per person, per year.

  • 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.
