The Fund recently strengthened its quarterly online surveys of health care opinion leaders through a partnership with Modern Healthcare magazine. The surveys, conducted by Harris Interactive, ask leaders for their views on a range of key health policy issues and options for addressing them. Survey results, along with commentaries written by top policy experts, are published in the print and online editions of Modern Healthcare and posted as well on the Fund's Web site. In addition, data briefs prepared by Fund staff examine the relevance of survey findings to the work of the Commission on a High Performance Health System. Building on the success of this project to date, the Fund will support an additional year of quarterly surveys covering major issues that are closely aligned with the Commission's work.
