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.

NIHCM Foundation Health Care Journalism Awards

Who is a contributor?

Anyone who should be credited for contributions to the entry should be listed as a contributor. It is common for the entrant to be the only contributor.

The entrant is listed as a contributor to the entry by default. In some cases an entrant may choose not to be a contributor; for example, a print editor may list herself as the entrant as an alternative to choosing a lead author, but she may prefer not to be included in finalist credits. If the entrant should NOT be credited as a contributor to the entry, you will need to check the box next to "Entrant should not be credited as a contributor to the entry" at the bottom of the Entrant Information form (step 2).

You can list up to twenty contributors in the entry form. Once you complete a set of contributor contact fields, click save and then "Add a Contributor." If you need to include more than twenty contributors, please contact NIHCM.

How will NIHCM use the contributor information?

Contributors to an entry will be contacted if the entry is chosen as a finalist. They will also be acknowledged in the finalist list and invited to our awards dinner.

We understand that in some circumstances it is difficult or inappropriate to share contact information for some contributors. If that is the case, please select "In care of entrant" above the address fields in the Contributor(s) step. When this box is selected, the entrant assumes responsibility for forwarding NIHCM's announcements and invitations to the contributor.
