Searching for the Next Breakthrough in Health Care

Health care in the U.S. is both unsustainably expensive and lacking on many measures of access, quality, and efficiency. In a new blog post, The Commonwealth Fund's Anne-Marie Audet, M.D., says it's going to take more than minor adjustments to change course—it will take a real breakthrough. Audet leads The Commonwealth Fund's new Breakthrough Health Care Opportunities program, which defines a breakthrough as a paradigm or strategy that positively and profoundly disrupts the status quo. In her post, she discusses how the program will identify the innovative ideas that have the highest probability of achieving breakthrough impact. You can also read the archive of a May 7 Tweetchat discussing ways to identify breakthrough ideas to improve health care delivery.
