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. —Steven Ross JohnsonFollow Steven Ross Johnson on Twitter: @MHsjohnson
