Convergence in health care spending across counties in New York from 2007 through 2016.

08:00 EDT 24th April 2019 | BioPortfolio

Summary of "Convergence in health care spending across counties in New York from 2007 through 2016."

One approach considered for reducing health care spending is to narrow the gap in spending between high- and low-spending areas. The goal would be to reduce spending in the high areas to similar levels achieved in areas that use health care more efficiently. This paper examined the degree to which high-spending areas remain high-spending and which types of service lead to convergence or divergence in spending in New York State.
