A Look Back at the Progress of Health Care Reform
This is an important review of healthcare reform from the President of the Commonwealth Fund, Karen Davis, who is stepping down after a very prestigious career and a very important role in moving affordable, accessible, coordinated care from a dream to the ACA Act. The Commonwealth Fund supported the 2009 NAP Forum "Transforming Health Care: Models of Interdisciplinary Care Coordination That Work" and the resulting NAP policy paper "Models of Accountable, Coordinated Health Care."  Our paper was highlighted on the Commonwealth Fund website for some time. Quite a feather in our cap!  You can find it now on the NAP website.
