Examining the Potential of Statewide and Local Initiatives to Transform Health Care Delivery

Wide geographic variations in U.S. health system performance highlight opportunities for states and communities to improve the quality and efficiency of care in concert with the anticipated expansion of health insurance coverage. One way The Commonwealth Fund seeks to stimulate higher performance is to identify promising approaches for surmounting challenges. Under this grant, Douglas McCarthy will launch a series of case studies to generate evidence for policymakers and practitioners interested in learning how particular approaches, adopted under various conditions, are helping to meet policy goals and improve health care delivery. McCarthy will also continue to support the Fund's performance scorecard team at the Institute for Healthcare Improvement (IHI) and lend guidance on the content of the Fund newsletters Quality Matters and States in Action.
