Which Health Policies Actually Work?

We spend a lot of money on healthcare. How much if goes toward good studies of the health policies we implement. Not much. An almost natural experiment in Oregon has been revealing.

Is Our Health Care Spending Actually Worth It?

Many people know by now that the United States spends much more on health care than any other country, and that health outcomes are not a lot better (and in many instances worse). That raises the question: Is our health care spending actually worth it?

Does More Social Spending Reduce Healthcare Costs?

We spend a lot of money on social programs. Studies indicate that a lot of those programs work to improve health outcomes for people who receive the benefits. So, does that social spending reduce healthcare costs? Not really. But cutting social spending doesn’t help with health. As usual, it’s complicated, but there’s a lot of evidence these programs are doing good. Spending is worth it sometimes.

Where You Live Has a Huge Impact on Your Health

Over the last year, we at Healthcare Triage have taken some deep dives into issues of health policy, especially those that touch on social determinants of health and health equity. The episodes that do so are a bit longer than usual. They look a little different. They also come to you thanks to the support of the RWJF, which has generously supported their creation. We’re excited about this opportunity to really dig in, and we hope you will be, too.

For the next four weeks, we’re going to talk about housing. Framing and introducing the issue is the topic of this week’s Healthcare Triage.

Racial Disparities in Healthcare are Pervasive

Study after study affirms that doctors treat their patients differently, depending on the patient’s race. Minority patients get different diagnoses, different treatments, and are often subject to being stereotyped by their physicians.
