The National Institutes of Health (NIH) is proposing to provide incentives to health care professionals to treat patients with heart attacks and stroke.
The proposal comes in the wake of a series of devastating incidents in which patients have died due to the failure of health care workers to treat their illnesses.
It is not clear how much of the $1.2 trillion in federal health spending will be dedicated to improving the care of heart attacks, strokes and related conditions.
But in a new report, the NIH’s Institute of Medicine says that it expects that the proposed incentives will help to:A) increase the number of people receiving health care by approximately one million a year by 2020;B) increase spending on primary care by nearly $2 billion a year;C) increase primary care spending by $1 billion a month by 2020, andD) increase hospital spending by about $1,200 per patient by 2020.
Among the proposals, the Institute recommends increasing the number and percentage of patients being treated in a health care setting by more than 20% over the next 10 years.
It also suggests that the NIH should consider awarding grants to health providers to use the new money for patient care.
Other proposals included expanding the amount of funding to be used for community health centers and providing incentives to primary care providers to treat people with certain diseases.
According to the report, while the NIH would like to see more incentives to care for patients with severe heart attacks or stroke, it would like the incentives to be in place long-term.
For instance, it wants the NIH to consider offering incentives to encourage health care providers who treat patients at community health facilities to provide them with care.
“These incentives could have a long-lasting impact on patients’ health and quality of life,” said Dr. Gregory Smith, director of the National Institutes for Health’s National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke.
“These incentives would improve patient care, and they would provide a financial incentive for primary care physicians to provide better care to patients.”
The NIH has not yet decided on the amount or timing of the incentives.
A number of health groups have expressed opposition to the proposal, and are asking the NIH not to include it in its budget request.
Health care experts have expressed concerns that the incentives could result in hospitals getting too much of a good thing and too little of a bad thing.
“In a world of rising costs, these incentives may encourage some hospitals to charge more than others, which could increase the burden on patients and hospitals,” wrote Dr. Jonathan Gruber, a Harvard Medical School economist, and a former adviser to President Donald Trump, in a letter to the NIH.
One of the most popular ways for the NIH is to fund research, which has increased over the last decade.
But the agency has been criticized for not investing enough in research, especially in the areas of stroke and heart disease.
In October, the agency’s budget request included an increase in the amount the NIH spends on research.
That amount was about $6.2 billion over the past five years.
However, the proposed changes could potentially hurt NIH’s ability to spend money on other areas of research, such as improving the quality of care.
