Legislation that will fundamentally change the U.S. health care system is now being shaped in Washington, D.C. And this time, nearly all stakeholders are at the negotiating table. Join a Commonwealth Fund/Institute for Healthcare Improvement <a href="">webinar</a&gt; this Friday, May 22, 2009, at 11 a.m., E.D.T., as three of the nation's leading thinkers in health policy and practice outline how physicians and others can help create a health care system that offers high-quality, affordable care for all Americans while containing costs. <br /><br />Webinar panelists Donald M. Berwick, M.D., M.P.P., a professor in the Department of Health Policy and Management at the Harvard School of Public Health and president and chief executive officer of the Institute for Healthcare Improvement; Karen Davis, Ph.D., president of The Commonwealth Fund; and Elliott S. Fisher, M.D., M.P.H., professor and associate director of Population Health and Policy at the Dartmouth Institute for Health Policy and Clinical Practice, will address quality improvement, integrated delivery, and payment reform as well as cost-saving measures that can help finance the coverage of the uninsured. A question-and-answer session will follow the panelists' presentations. <br /><br />To register for this free one-hour online meeting, go to <a href="">http://commonwealthfundevents…;.
