Innovation in Public Health

NEHI research and analysis promotes the adoption of evidence-based policy and practices for health promotion, the prevention of chronic disease and reducing health risks. Prior NEHI projects have focused on the unique social, political and business challenges of sustaining effective, multi-factor strategies that improve health at the local and regional level. Current NEHI projects focus on identifying potential policy solutions to expand access to adult vaccinations, and raising awareness for new treatment choices for diabetes care that target glycemic control, reduce cardiovascular disease risks and promote weight control.

    Rx for Health Reform

    NEHI has taken a leading role in informing and influencing the health care debate. The core of this initiative is our policy statement, Rx for Health Reform, calling for containing health care costs by preventing illness, managing chronic diseases and strengthening primary care. These goals can be realized by implementing a series of policy changes known as the NEHI Nine. NEHI supports increasing access to health care of uninsured Americans but believes that a lasting and cost conscious solution requires system-wide reform. If we change the way we finance, organize and deliver care, we can improve quality and save costs for all Americans by preventing illness, managing chronic diseases, and strengthening primary care.
