A new IOM re­port seeks to cre­ate a new mech­a­nism for col­lect­ing and mea­sur­ing data on pub­lic health to give pol­i­cy­mak­ers bet­ter tools in steer­ing health pol­icy. Providers hope this doesn’t mean they’ll be stuck with the bill. “This is a pub­lic good and there­fore I would not ex­pect that it’s re­liant on hos­pi­tal con­tri­bu­tions. It should be re­sourced through pub­lic means,” says the AHA’s Nancy Fos­ter, left.
