Cutting costs through education, networking, and innovation

The Institute for Affordable Health Care (IAHC) is an organization dedicated to making U.S. health care more cost-effective without sacrificing quality.

A number of other organizations are aimed at goals similar to IAHC’s, including the Health Care Cost Institute (, the Council for Affordable Health Insurance (, the Institute for Clinical & Economic Review (, the Bi-Partisan Policy Center (, Stanford University’s Clinical Excellence Research Center (, the Health Care Systems Research Network (, and others. We are collaborating with some of these organizations as we pursue our common vision.
IAHC’s Executive Director is David G. Anderson, Ph.D. You can e-mail him at [email protected]
