Interventions to Promote Health and Increase Health Care Efficiency: A Review of the Evidence

Open Publication PDF

John Bauer, Noa Kay, Matt Lemon, Megan Morris - December 2014

WSIPP’s Board of Directors authorized WSIPP to work on a joint project with the MacArthur Foundation and the Pew Charitable Trusts to extend WSIPP’s benefit-cost analysis to certain health care topics. An important goal is to determine whether there are strategies that can help states control Medicaid and other health care costs.

This report reviews evidence on six topics: “lifestyle” programs designed to prevent diabetes; behavioral interventions to reduce obesity; smoking cessation during pregnancy; transitional care to prevent hospital readmissions; patient-centered medical homes; and programs to reduce avoidable emergency department visits.
