EVERYONE WINS: Maximizing the Economic Impact of Health Care Delivery in New Mexico

May 20, 2013

Everyone WinsAccording to a new report about the economic impact of health care reform in New Mexico, increased access to health care will result in new jobs, increased incomes and a healthier population. EVERYONE WINS: Maximizing the Economic Impact of Health Care Delivery in New Mexico makes the case that increasing access to health care will cause a stimulus to the health-care sector that will ripple throughout the broader economy, creating new jobs and increasing income in virtually all industrial sectors.

Con Alma Health Foundation, along with the Mid Region Council of Governments, U.S. Economic Development Administration, and the McCune Charitable Foundation provided funding for economist Kelly O’Donnell, Ph.D, to write a compelling report to help people understand the impact of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act in New Mexico. The report outlines where New Mexico is now and what it needs to do to maximize the state’s delivery of health care. The report covers topics like health care employment, health care as an economic base industry and economic impacts of health care. O’Donnell concludes the report by providing key recommendations for New Mexico to realize “the full economic potential of our state’s health care delivery system.”
