A Message from Commonwealth Fund President Karen Davis on Health Reform's First Year

In this essay for the 2011 Annual Report, Commonwealth Fund president Karen Davis looks back over the foundation's efforts to explain the impact of health reform and support its implementation, and to lay the groundwork for future change.

"We at The Commonwealth Fund are committed to tracking progress in health reform, informing the policies required to align incentives with performance, and helping spread successful innovations and best practices," she writes. "We fully anticipate arriving at a turning point within the not-too-distant future when a half-century of rising uninsured is reversed, and when life expectancy in the U.S.—a nation that devotes so many resources to health care—no longer lags that of most other industrialized nations."
