U.S. Spends Too Little on Public Health Initiatives: Report
Date:4/10/2012

TUESDAY, April 10 (HealthDay News) -- The United States needs to spend more on its chronically underfunded public health system and use that money more efficiently, according to an Institute of Medicine report released Tuesday.

The United States spends more on health than any other nation -- nearly $2.5 trillion in 2009 -- but has lower scores on life expectancy, infant survival and other indicators of population health than other wealthy nations, according to the report.

The report calls for the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services to establish new goals for life expectancy and per-person health spending. The hope is that setting targets will motivate public health and medical care professionals to work together to maximize the value of health spending, and that public health skills and knowledge are used to address some of the biggest issues facing the larger health care system, such as the unnecessary use of medical procedures.

To achieve efficient use of public health dollars, the report recommended that the U.S. National Prevention, Health Promotion, and Public Health Council -- created by the Affordable Care Act -- should establish the minimum level of public health services every community should receive from its state and local health departments.

In addition, the council should create an expert panel to determine how much money is needed for every public health department to provi
