Equitable Access to Innovation

The importance of innovation in health care cannot be overstated, especially in light of the pandemic. Innovative medical treatments, as well as innovations in health care delivery, are essential to increasing life-saving treatments and improving patient outcomes. The pandemic has, however, also highlighted inequities in access to and adoption of innovations, an issue that includes affordability, but extends to systemic barriers to health equity, resulting in disparities in health for individuals of color as well as other underserved populations in our country. NEHI has always focused on work to accelerate access to innovations that add value to our health care system. We continue this core function by pursuing projects that incorporate the role that innovations must play in improving health equity.

    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.
