Considering (And Making Sense Of) Health Spending

Health spending currently accounts for nearly 18% of the US’ Gross Domestic Product.

If the nation spends so much on health care – about $11,500 per person in the US – then are we getting a good value in return for that spending?

Last week, Health Affairs launched a newsletter for our Considering Health Spending initiative to bring readers a forum for emerging research that sheds light on how much the nation spends on health care and how we might improve the value of that spending or even change the spending trajectory.

The first issue of the monthly newsletter dives into some classic research on health care spending and value, including the seminal 2003 piece, “It’s The Prices, Stupid.”

On today’s episode of Health Affairs This Week, Health Affairs Senior Editor Laura Tollen joins Deputy Editor Rob Lott to share details on the initiative and discuss the ways researchers are addressing key questions about health care spending and value.
