Improving Health Care Delivery

NEHI’s research and analysis in care delivery focuses on identifying innovations that increase the value and reduce the costs of health care. Prior NEHI research has demonstrated that waste and inefficiencies in health care account for $800 billion in unnecessary costs, or a full third of the nation’s health care spending, and that eliminating it requires many clinical, systemic and behavioral changes in organizations across health care. Current NEHI projects focus on assessing the impact of comparative effectiveness research on innovation and identifying innovative practices and policy actions in areas such as reducing hospital readmissions, increasing medication adherence, preventing medication errors and improving patient safety.

NEHI'S Impact

For Our Members

“NEHI has been a valuable forum to help navigate the changing health care landscape. It has also been a catalyst for informing and influencing the health reform debate and in a number of instances has moved the ultimate decisions to a better place.”
-Josef H. von Rickenbach, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, PAREXEL International, Inc. 

In the Media

"NEHI President Wendy Everett said she expected to see more and more adoption of best practices in the next few years, spurred by President Obama’s Affordable Care Act, other changes to Medicare and Medicaid and a recognition among doctors and insurers that the current trajectory of health care spending is unsustainable.

'This train’s coming much faster than we thought,' Ms. Everett said. She guessed that within a decade providers being paid for the quality, not quantity, of care would be 'the norm.'"- The New York Times
