What's the most accurate predictor of healthcare costs?

A new study by the Center for Studying Health System Change identifies factors associated with the cost of treating high-cost Medicare beneficiaries.


Reducing inappropriate variation in healthcare use

The American Hospital Association offers the guide “Health Care Leader Action Guide: Understanding and Managing Variation” to provide hospitals with a resource to help reduce inappropriate variation within their own organizations and in conjunction with care partners.


Preventive care gets a big boost

The Department of Health and Human Services has released $100 million in Affordable Care Act grants to prevent disease. This allows states to pay incentives to enrollees who adopt healthy habits.


Nursing informatics key to meaningful use

A recent HIMSS survey finds that nurse informaticists are increasing in practice scope and significance, becoming leaders in advancing the best use of healthcare IT.
