Institute of Medicine honors members for outstanding service
Date:10/21/2013

WASHINGTON -- The Institute of Medicine of the National Academies honored members Donald Berwick, R. Alta Charo, and Ellen Wright Clayton for their outstanding service today at the IOM's 43rd annual meeting.

Berwick received the Walsh McDermott Medal, awarded to an IOM member for distinguished service over an extended period. He served on the IOM Committee on the Quality of Health Care in America, which produced the landmark reports To Err Is Human and Crossing the Quality Chasm, as well as on several "offspring" committees that resulted in additional volumes in the Quality Chasm series. His contributions to the language and essential ideas articulated in the reports were critical, and it is this work that best exemplifies the nature of his service to the IOM. Not only a key leader in the creation of a scientific, philosophical, and ethical framework for what health care must become, Berwick was also exceptional at convening groups and encouraging consensus among them. He has served both domestically and internationally as an IOM representative to the broader public. His two decades of work at Institute for Healthcare Improvement (IHI), and later at Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS), constituted an effective dissemination agent for the principles and recommendations of the IOM. Berwick has tirelessly promoted the IOM's vision and achievements while speaking, consulting, and leading clinical improvement activities around the globe. As a member of the Committee on Improving the Patient Record in the late 1980s, the IOM Council, and many other committees, he has been an unflagging contributor and leader for the IOM, and he exhibits qualities of an ideal IOM member through his commitment to science, collaboration, service, and patients. Berwick is former president and CEO of IHI and former CMS administrator.

Charo was presented the Adam Yarmolinsky Medal, awarded to an IOM member from a discipline outside the health and medi
