ABIM Foundation Announces New Focus and Governance
Date:7/1/2008

ternal oversight.

"There is a growing sense that professionalism has weakened, which has the potential to negatively affect public trust in medicine," said Christine K. Cassel, MD, president and CEO of ABIM and the ABIM Foundation. "By developing mechanisms to crisply define and support new notions of professionalism, we can better meet the needs of patients and payers for greater accountability."

Recent research, sponsored by the Institute of Medicine as a Profession, identified notable gaps between the ideals physicians aspire to in the professionalism realm and their practices. The ABIM Foundation aspires to close these gaps by working collaboratively with patients, employers, health plans, physicians and other stakeholders to develop and implement shared expectations about physicians' roles and responsibilities in the context of a changing health care system.

"The inclusion of non-physicians as Trustees in the Foundation has proven invaluable in helping us define and implement an agenda that is inclusive of all involved in healthcare," added John Popovich, Jr, MD, Chair of the ABIM Foundation Board of Trustees. "By having Glenn Hackbarth and Bruce Bradley serve as Officers for the Foundation, we will be better able to bridge the divide between the perspectives of physicians on professionalism and payers and patients on accountability."

An additional focus of the Foundation will be the responsibilities articulated in the Physician Charter focusing on "stewardship of finite resources." In light of the crisis regarding the cost of health care, the Foundation hopes to play a leadership role in advancing the physician's ability to effectively steward the health care resources of his or her community.

The Trustees serving for 2008-2009 are:

-- Chair: John Popovich, Jr., MD - Chair, Department of Medicine, Henry

Ford Health System

-- Vice-Chair: Glenn Hackbarth, JD, MA - Chair, Medicare Payment Advisory
