THE NATIONAL ACADEMIES Advisers 10 the Nation on Science/ Engineering/ and Medicine The National Academy of Sciences is a private, nonprofit, self-perpetuating society of distinguished scholars engaged in scientific and engineering research, dedicated to the furtherance of science and technology and to their use for the general welfare. Upon the authority of the charter granted to it by the Congress in 1863, the Academy has a mandate that requires it to advise the federal government on scientific and technical matters. Dr. Bruce M. Alberts is president of the National Academy of Sciences. Me National Academy of Engineering was established in 1964, under the charter of the National Academy of Sciences, as a parallel organization of outstanding engineers. It is autonomous in its administration arid in the selection of its members, sharing with the National Academy of Sciences the responsibility for advising the federal government. The National Academy of Engineering also sponsors engineering programs aimed at meeting national needs, encourages education and research, and recognizes the superior achievements of engineers. Dr. Wm. A. Wulf is president of the National Academy of Engineering. lbe Institute of Medicine was established in 1970 by the National Academy of Sciences to secure the services of eminent members of appropriate professions in the examination of policy matters pertaining to the health of the public. The Institute acts under the responsibility given to the National Academy of Sciences by its congressional charter to be an adviser to the federal government and, upon its own initiative, to identify issues of medical care, research, and education. Dr. Harvey V. Fineberg is president of the Institute of Medicine. The National Research Council was organized by the National Academy of Sciences in 1916 to associate the broad community of science and technology with the Academy's purposes of furthering knowledge and advising the federal government. Functioning in accordance with general policies determined by the Academy, the Council has become the principal operating agency of both the National Academy of Sciences and the National Academy of Engineering in providing services to the government, the public, and the scientific and engineering communities. The Council is administered jointly by both Academies and the Institute of Medicine. Dr. Bruce M. Alberts and Dr. Wm. A. Wulf are chair and vice chair, respectively, of the National Research Council. ., www.national-academies.org

Foreword In June 2002, Health and Human Services Secretary, Tommy Thompson, met with leaders from The National Academies, including the Presidents and selected members from the Institute of Medicine, the National Academy of Sciences and the National Academy of Engineering. Paramount among his concerns were the serious problems confronting the health care delivery system, including rapidly rising health care costs, serious quality and safety shortcomings, growing numbers of uninsured, racial and ethnic disparities in access and quality of care, and workforce shortages. The Secretary challenged the National Academies to identify several bold ideas that might change conventional thinking about the most serious problems facing the health care system. Throughout our history, the Academies have welcomed tough assignments. Since our founding in ~ 863, we have called upon leading scientists to examine difficult problems and produce original insights or solutions. The recent report, Making the Nation Safer, describes a wide range of threats to homeland security and recommends actions to protect the nation against terrorism. The current crisis confronting the nation's health care delivery system is no less important to our long-term national interests. O The TOM responded to the Secretary~s challenge through the Committee on Rapid Advance Demon- stration Projects: Health Care Finance and Delivery Systems. The committee was charged with identify- ing a set of demonstration projects that have the potential to lead fundamental change in the health care system. The ideas presented are bold, and testing them will require resources. However, the scale of the problem requires not only paradigm shifting ideas, but a rigorous and full scale testing of those ideas before they are considered for national implementation. Under current assumptions, the Medicare trustees project that in 75 Years. health care could account for 40 percent of GNP. Chancing that traiec- :- _ r__J__ _ .~ - . . ~ . ~ . . .. . ~ . .. ... tory w111 require wide rangmg reforms and changes on the part oi consumers, employers and health care professionals alike. The Secretary's request to the National Academies and others to think creatively and unconventionally is an important step in creating alternative paths to assure quality health care for the American people without preempting other vital national interests. Sharing the Secretary's sense of urgency, the IOM committee has moved expeditiously to identify a set of demonstration projects intended to produce model delivery systems within 5 years. As a country, we must now begin the challenging task of building a health care system for the 2ISt century. Harvey V. Fineberg, M.D., Ph.D. Presidlent,, Institute of Medicine November 2002 1X
