Leadership Commitments to Improve Value in Healthcare: Toward Common Ground: Workshop Summary
Authors: LeighAnne Olsen, W. Alexander Goolsby, and J. Michael McGinnis; Roundtable on Evidence-Based Medicine, Institute of Medicine Published by National Academies Press, 2009 – title is forthcoming

“This volume reports on discussions among multiple stakeholders about ways they might help transform health care in the United States. The U.S. healthcare system consists of a complex network of decentralized and loosely associated organizations, services, relationships, and participants. Each of the healthcare system’s component sectors–patients, healthcare professionals, healthcare delivery organizations, healthcare product developers, clinical investigators and evaluators, regulators, insurers, employers and employees, and individuals involved in information technology–conducts activities that support a common goal: to improve patient health and wellbeing. Implicit in this goal is the commitment of each stakeholder group to contribute to the evidence base for health care, that is, to assist with the development and application of information about the efficacy, safety, effectiveness, value, and appropriateness of the health care delivered.”
