Commonwealth Fund/Nuffield Trust International Conference on Health Care Quality Improvement, 2008


The annual health care quality improvement symposia sponsored by the Fund and the Nuffield Trust since 1999 have brought together senior government officials, leading health researchers, and practitioners from the United States and the United Kingdom to exchange ideas and strategies for quality improvement. At the 2007 meeting, U.S. and U.K. experts explored the challenges of delivering high-quality, efficient acute care for people with chronic illness, and resolved to collaborate further on developing strategies for changing policy and practice. The 2008 conference, to be held in Boston, will carry that work forward. Among the topics to be explored are: system reforms that promote the medical home model; shared accountability resulting from shifts to multidisciplinary care teams; and payment incentives that foster better care coordination. Project staff will explore opportunities for collaboration on specific improvement activities. The Nuffield Trust will cofund the conference.
