Professor Elliott Fisher, Professor of Community and Family Medicine at Dartmouth Medical School and Director of the Center for Health Policy Research at the Dartmouth Institute for Health Policy and Clinical Practice spoke at the 5th HARC Forum in November 2009.
The purpose of this forum was to consider how we can create and use new evidence about health system performance in order to inform policy and practice.
Professor Fisher gave an overview of the internationally leading Dartmouth Atlas Project. This project has documented glaring variations in US healthcare delivery and has radically changed the way we think about effectiveness and efficiency of health care.
