Commission on a High Performance Health System: Meetings


In April 2005, the Board approved the establishment of The Commonwealth Fund Commission on a High Performance Health System, which is charged with identifying public and private policies and practices that would lead to higher performance, with a focus on those in society who are vulnerable due to income, minority status, health, or age. In addition to holding three meetings per year, the 18-member commission will produce an annual policy report and performance scorecard. Its work will also be reflected in existing Fund-sponsored activities, including the Bipartisan Congressional Retreat, Congressional Staff Retreat, and Alliance for Health Reform briefings and roundtables. The Fund will provide grants to the Washington, D.C.–based AcademyHealth and Alliance for Health Reform to provide basic staff support for key Commission activities. A senior policy director based at AcademyHealth will work with the executive director on Commission meetings and all policy-related programs and products. Staff at the Alliance will be responsible for logistical support of the three annual Commission meetings.
