The National Health Statistics Group (NHSG) has managed to keep the national health accounts apolitical and highly respected.
NHSG strategies have included the careful acquisition and presentation of statistics relating to health cost and payers;
the use of scholarly journals to disseminate ideas to other government offices and, beyond them, to industry, labor, the professions
and universities; and the promotion of cooperation with related
U.S., statistical agencies, provider groups, contractors, and international organizations.
