ECONorthwest offers expertise in healthcare economics for both policy makers and practitioners.

Based on existing trends, analysts project that total health care spending in the United States will represent about 26% of the economy by 2035, and a full 10% of the economy will be made up of just federal spending on mandatory healthcare programs.  The question is when, how, and at what consequence will the healthcare cost curve bend?

Slowing healthcare spending while improving quality is a central public policy challenge of the next several decades, and solving it will require the coordinated work of physicians, nurses, administrators, insurers, and courageous public leaders. To proceed competently, they’ll need a clear understanding of the market they are attempting to reform.
