National health spending has grown faster than the economy for decades, and the current rate of growth is not sustainable. Reimbursement has heavily rewarded quantity of care, while minimizing the importance of care quality and value.

The Spring/Summer 2012 Altarum Survey of Consumer Health Care Opinions report covers several topics.
Altarum developed a system of models to project and compare supply and demand by specialty for physicians, physician assistants, nurse practitioners, certified nurse midwives, and certified registered nurse anesthetists in the United States from 2010 to 2030 for the National Center for Health Workforce Analysis at the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) Bureau of Health Professions (BHPr).

Among the nearly 22 million Veterans living in the United States, a significant population has limited access to health care because of long travel times to Veterans Health Administration (VHA) health care facilities and services.
The Highest Health Care Utilization and Associated Costs project systematically identified and examined diagnostic conditions with the highest differential rates of health care utilization and accompanying costs between health care provided in civilian facilities (purchased care or PC) and direct care (DC) services (care provided by military treatment facilities).
