Health Reform for the Non-Expert

Earlier this year, The Commonwealth Fund launched a new series of jargon-free publications called "Health Reform & You" to help non-experts make sense of the many changes taking place in the U.S. health care system—and the ways in which they’re likely to affect patients, employers, and providers.

Better Care at Lower Cost: Is It Possible?, released last month, takes a look at the sources of high costs in the United States, the obstacles to getting them under control, and promising efforts to uncover the pathway to high-value health care. Primary Care: Our First Line of Defense shows why primary care is so fundamental to a high-functioning health system. It explores medical homes, new patient and provider incentives, and federal efforts to boost primary care.

These free resources can be posted on your organization’s website and shared with friends and colleagues. Email Deborah Lorber at [email protected] for help with cobranding and distribution.
