Rising Health Care Costs in Indiana Addressed in New Report
A new report from researchers at the Fairbanks School of Public Health details a unique, actionable framework that Indiana leaders can use to address rising health care costs in the state. The report, "Addressing Factors that Affect Health Care Costs: Recommendations for Indiana Stakeholders," was led by Nir Menachemi, Richard M. Fairbanks Endowed Chair, professor and chair of the school's Department of Health Policy and Management, and Paul Halverson, professor and founding dean of the Fairbanks School of Public Health. They designed the report to help move Indiana toward a statewide strategic plan to lower health care costs -- especially through coordinated efforts to improve the health of Hoosiers.
