Improving Administrative Processes: Collaborative Approaches to Prior Authorization

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.
