Appendix G
Summit Planning

The summit committee was organized into subgroups to carry out the extensive planning required. The six subgroups focused on the agenda, the summit participants list, community selection, prework with participating communities, summit cross-cutting sessions, and facilitation of the summit working groups. Over a 6-month period leading up to the summit, the full committee met four times—twice in face-to-face meetings and twice in full committee conference calls. The committee also met before, during, and directly after the summit to monitor progress and assess outcomes.

The committee benefited greatly from the input and advice of key liaisons, including Lisa Koonin and Stephanie Zaza from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention; Don Berwick and Maureen Bisognano from the Institute for Healthcare Improvement; Ed Wagner and Brian Austin from the MacColl Institute for Healthcare Innovation at Group Health Cooperative; and Carolyn Clancy and Dan Stryer from the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality. These individuals apprised the committee of care delivery innovations and challenges, as well as emerging federal programs and priorities to support local innovation. Paul Tarini and Tracy Orleans from The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation also provided important input.

The committee worked with IOM staff to develop background papers on each of the five priority areas targeted for the summit. Before the summit took place, all participants received a copy of Crossing the Quality Chasm: A New Health System for the 21st Century and had an opportunity to participate in a teleconference focused on reviewing the report’s major findings and recommendations, led by George Isham from HealthPartners, Inc.

In January 2004, the Institute of Medicine (IOM) hosted the 1st Annual Crossing the Quality Chasm Summit, convening a group of national and community health care leaders to pool their knowledge and resources with regard to strategies for improving patient care for five common chronic illnesses. This summit was a direct outgrowth and continuation of the recommendations put forth in the 2001 IOM report Crossing the Quality Chasm: A New Health System for the 21st Century. The summit's purpose was to offer specific guidance at both the community and national levels for overcoming the challenges to the provision of high-quality care articulated in the Quality Chasm report and for moving closer to achievement of the patient-centerd health care system envisioned therein.
