Modern Healthcare

The head of the Commonwealth Fund announced that the 95-year-old foundation will adopt a new direction, including tracking the progress of the federal healthcare reform law and the performance of the nation’s healthcare system. “Our refocused programs will look for ways to engage consumers and healthcare providers in improving care, and also draw in other stakeholders with the ability to effect change, including policymakers, employers, entrepreneurs, software developers, insurers, health system leaders and many more,” Dr. David Blumenthal, president of the Commonwealth Fund, said in a news release. He said, “Promoting a high-performing health system will remain the foundation’s touchstone.”
