Commonwealth Fund Names David Blumenthal, M.D., as Next President

David Blumenthal, M.D., one of the nation's foremost health information technology experts, thought leaders on primary care and professionalism, and health policy scholars, has been named the next president of The Commonwealth Fund by the foundation's board. He will succeed Karen Davis, starting in January 2013. Dr. Blumenthal, currently Samuel O. Thier Professor of Medicine at Harvard Medical School and Chief Health Information and Innovation Officer at Partners Healthcare System in Boston, has also been elected a member of the Fund's board of directors. He currently chairs the Commonwealth Fund Commission on a High Performance Health System.

In making the announcement, Commonwealth Fund board chairman James R. Tallon, Jr., said, "We are extremely fortunate to have Dr. Blumenthal take the helm of the Fund at a crucial time in the drive to achieve a high-performance health system. If the U.S. is to realize the triple aims of better health, better care, and lower cost, it will need over the next 10 years unstinting efforts by health policy and practice leaders like Dr. Blumenthal."
