NaviHealth forms new policy research center
Tennessee-based post-acute-care manager naviHealth has launched a new research center focused on policy issues and providing a forum for best practices within the field.
Based in Washington, the Post-Acute Care Center for Research will focus on exchanging ideas with an array of industry stakeholders for the purpose of serving as an information repository on post-acute-care issues. Post-acute-care spending is estimated to total $110 billion annually.
Serving as the center’s director for scientific research and evaluation will be Barbara Gage, a fellow of economic studies at the Brookings Institution who has directed the CMS’ work in payment policy and quality measurement for the past 20 years.
