Fostering Rapid Advances in Health Care:
Learning from System Demonstrations
A new report from the Institute of Medicine, Fostering Rapid Advances in Health Care, identifies possible demonstration projects that might be implemented in 2003, with the hope of yielding models for broader health system reform within a few years. The report recommends a substantial portfolio of demonstration projects, including chronic and primary care, information and communications technology infrastructure, health nsurance coverage, and liability. As a set, they address key aspects of the health delivery system and the financing and legal environment in which health care is provided. The launching of a carefully crafted set of demonstrations is viewed as a way to initiate a building block approach to health system change.
These series of briefings were for members of Congress and congressional staff only. The report was publicly released on November 19, 2002 and can be found online, in its entirety, through the Web site of the National Academies Press.
