Public Health Infrastructure: Health Care Trends
The health of Americans has improved dramatically over the past few decades; however, the recent recession and sequestration mandates, which began in March of 2013, resulted in significant budget cuts to the funding of the public health infrastructure. Public health infrastructure: Health care trends addresses the most important public health infrastructure trends affecting patients and physicians today and those that are expected to have a significant impact in the future. This report by the AMA’s Council on Long Range Planning and Development analyzes data on the public health infrastructure, the public health work force, health inequities, obesity, tobacco, infectious diseases and injury to formulate predicted impacts of these trends for patients and physicians.
