HHS should set new goals for life expectancy and per-person health spending in the U.S. to help the country achieve better health outcomes, according to new study from the Institute of Medicine.

Those recommendations are among several the IOM included in a 236-page report that is the third and last in a series related to public health. In 2009, the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation asked the IOM to establish a committee that would evaluate measurement, the law, and funding about public health.
