Impact & Outcomes
NEHI is in a unique position to influence change in health care. We are the unified voice of diverse sectors in the health care community and our research is unparalleled in its objectivity. Using this formula, we convene and inform policy makers and health care leaders, build coalitions, conduct independent research projects, publish and disseminate reports, and drive policy change.
Our results speak for themselves. In just five years, our innovative programs and solutions have led to tangible progress, with real lives – and dollars – saved as a result.
We’re proud of these examples:
To shift the campaign debate from access to broader health care reform, NEHI gathered 150 senior health care leaders, including top health care policy advisers from the key presidential campaigns, for an open dialogue resulting in rare consensus.
Part of the challenge of reducing waste in health care -- spending that could be eliminated without reducing quality of care -- is to identify it. In three research reports, NEHI has compiled the strongest case to date for the need and the means to address wasteful and inefficient care.
Following the release of NEHI research demonstrating the effectiveness of computerized physician order entry in reducing medication errors, leading payers and policymakers have taken steps to require that hospitals implement the technology.
