Best Care at Lower Cost
is the Institute of Medicine’s (IOM) most comprehensive look at the nation's health care issues and challenges since the Quality Chasm
series of a dozen years ago. In the report, the IOM not only updates insights on the quality of care, but also chronicles and underscores the challenges of health care’s growing complexity, cost, and waste, identifying some $750 billion in unnecessary expenditures annually, and reviewing the opportunities for continuous learning and improvement.
In commentary for the report, ANA President Karen A. Daley, PhD, RN, FAAN, describes the promise of a continuously learning health care system, underscoring the system’s potential for optimizing nurse-led initiatives to generate, disseminate and translate evidence to high-value health care.
