Affordable, quality health care. For everyone.

President's Message: Aiming High

President's Message from the 2005 Annual Report

Feeling that the time is again ripe for foundation leadership, The Commonwealth Fund has established the Commission on a High Performance Health System. The Commission's goal is to move the nation toward a health care system that provides better access, higher quality, and greater efficiency, with particular focus on the most vulnerable members of our society. The Commission has just begun its work, yet it has already identified ten priorities for its own deliberations—and, ultimately, for a health system aligned to achieve the goal of high performance. In her 2005 President's Message, Karen Davis outlines these critical priorities.
