NEHI research and analysis is aimed at systematic improvement of medication safety, medication effectiveness and patient medication adherence in the U.S. health care system. Prior NEHI research on patient medication adherence is widely cited. Current NEHI projects focus on the convergence of ongoing trends in health care payment reform, population health management, healthcare information technology, chronic care coordination, health care quality improvement and pharmacy practice. We also focus on how this convergence can be accelerated to reduce medication errors, enhance medication safety, improve patient outcomes, eliminate health care waste and achieve appropriate health care cost containment throughout the health care system.
