Partnership for Prevention Offers Health Reform Recommendations to Congress
Date:12/11/2008

U.S. each year.

Partnership's recommendations focus on three areas: increased utilization of clinical preventive services, promotion of community preventive services, and increasing the impact of prevention through research and performance measurement.

The recommendation to cover preventive services in federally sponsored health insurance programs would apply to Medicare, Medicaid, the Department of Defense and the Veterans Administration, as well as the private-sector health insurance offerings included in the Federal Employees Health Benefits Program. The covered services would be those recommended by the U.S. Preventive Services Task Force and the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices.

The newly created Public Health Advisory Commission would also recommend strategies to hold the public health system accountable for achieving the "Healthy People" health goals sponsored by the Department of Health and Human Services.

Partnership also recommends increased investment in research on effective clinical and community preventive services, as well as improved data systems to monitor progress in meeting Healthy People goals.

Partnership's recommendations were drawn from a series of policy papers commissioned from leading national public health authorities. The papers cover such diverse topics as modernizing Medicare to improve the delivery of preventive services, determining the content of a package of preventive services, linking the clinical care and public health systems, strengthening the role of the nation's public health system, reorganizing the Department of Health and Human Services, and expanding worksite health promotion programs.

The authors of the papers include: Kurt Stange, professor of family medicine, epidemiology & biostatistics, and sociology and oncology at Case Western Reserve University; Steven Woolf
