Healthcare Value and Payment Innovations

In today's health care system, nearly every stakeholder is focused on delivering greater value. Better health outcomes for patients and greater efficiency in health care delivery and health care spending are over-arching goals. NEHI's research and policy agenda reflects the multiple approaches that NEHI member organizations are now taking towards realizing higher value in U.S. health care, from alternative payment models for provider reimbursement, to value-based arrangements between health care payers and pharmaceutical and device manufacturers, to patient engagement initiatives designed to bring greater equity and patient focus to the care experienced by patients every day.

    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.
