VES personnel have performed a wide range of health care analyses from both within and outside of government.  In one case, a government entity was looking to improve the efficiency of health care service delivery by rationalizing the mix of providers by employment type.  VES personnel led a series of analyses on the topic that included developing new methodologies for assessing delivery costs by employment type and showed substantial savings available from realignment of providers.  The analyses recommended significant staffing changes and a legislative change to allow more flexibility for this type of rationalization in the future.
