Today, the May 2010 issue of Health Affairs, including a new GrantWatch Outcomes column, was released. This issue, which is chockfull of information at more than 300 pages, has the theme “Reinventing Primary Care.”
GrantWatch Outcomes also focuses on primary care; it discusses results of projects funded by foundations around the United States. For example, see how the Colorado Trust’s funding is helping to inform policy in that state.
The column also contains a section on foundation staffers’ comings and goings. Read about the new president and CEO of the Annie E. Casey Foundation, in Baltimore; the retirement of well-known grantmaker Beverly Railey Robinson, from the Claude Worthington Benedum Foundation; and more.
Among the foundation-supported content in this issue is “Primary Care and Why It Matters for U.S. Health System Reform,” by Robert L. Phillips Jr. and Andrew W. Bazemore; the Josiah Macy Jr. Foundation commissioned an early version of this paper. Another example is “Structuring Payment for Medical Homes,” by Katie Merrell and Bob Berenson; the Commonwealth Fund supported this work.
Also in this issue, Len Finocchio of the California HealthCare Foundation (CHCF) has written a review of a book on oral health.
The United Health Foundation, CHCF, CVS Caremark, the ABIM Foundation, and the American Academy of Physician Assistants supported the May 2010 issue of Health Affairs.Email This Post Print This Post
