As noted in the Institute of Medicine’s seminal report Crossing the Quality Chasm: A New Health System for the 21st Century, “health care today harms too frequently and routinely fails to deliver its potential benefits.” For over a decade, foundations have been showcasing to the field that improving health care quality is both needed and possible. GIH recognizes that this work is now an integral part of the health reform law and that bridging the “quality chasm” will require change at all levels of our health care system.

Since 2011, the Blue Shield of California Foundation has invested in a series of studies examining the health care preferences and experiences of low-income Californians. As part of this work, the Foundation has developed a number of supporting resources, including a recent webinar on patient engagement as a key element of care transformation.
The Patient-Centered Outcomes Research Institute has joined a group of biomedical research funders in calling for greater collaboration in using data to speed the development of high-quality evidence. A new blog post summarizes the consortium's rationale presented in the New England Journal of Medicine and its five principles for transforming evidence generation to more effectively support health decisions.
