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.
