As the Affordable Care Act takes effect, it will be important to monitor the law’s impact and learn how leading health care organizations pursue and achieve high performance. Through a contract with Issues Research, Inc., The Commonwealth Fund will engage the full-time services of its longtime partner Douglas McCarthy to oversee development of the suite of health system performance scorecards produced by the Fund’s research team at the Institute for Healthcare Improvement, and to direct case studies of innovators in health care delivery to inform policymakers and practitioners. In his role as senior research director, McCarthy also will provide strategic guidance for the Fund’s new Health Care Delivery System Reform and Breakthrough Health Care Opportunities programs.
