21st Century Health Care Delivery System

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 advancing a more “distributed” health care system outside of conventional settings, and identifying innovative practices and policy actions in areas such as reducing administrative costs and waste, and improving patient safety.

    ADOPT Toolkit

    The website will offer tools in four discreet technology areas: remote patient monitoring (RPM), medication optimization, care transitions, and mobile health. RPM tools are now available online and tools for mobile health technologies will be available in November. NEHI, with its deep portfolio of research indentifying valuable but under used technologies and barriers to their adoption, served in an advisory role on the Toolkit project. In addition, NEHI partnered with Atrius Health in Massachusetts on a study, funded by CTA, of the effectiveness of remote patient monitoring for patients with chronic illnesses.

    A Matter of Urgency: Reducing Emergency Department Overuse

    The overuse of U.S. emergency departments (EDs) is responsible for $38 billion in wasteful spending each year. Given the tremendous opportunity to lower health care costs by addressing this problem, NEHI launched an initiative to examine ED overuse in detail. Through this initiative, NEHI has identified the key factors driving this costly ED overuse, including who overuses the ED, what causes ED overuse and what can be done to reduce it.

    FAST Detailed Technology Analysis - Tele-stroke

    During 2008-2009, NEHI's Fast Adoption of Significant Technologies (FAST) initiative focused on telemedicine technologies that address chronic disease. Chronic disease is of particular concern because of the growing prevalence of illnesses such as diabetes and heart disease and the mounting costs these preventable conditions generate in the health care system. NEHI reviewed over 100 telemedicine technologies, identified the eleven considered most promising, and then examined in detail the two that were highest rated, Tele-stroke and Home Telehealth. NEHI completed Detailed Technology Analyses of each.
