rocess. Criteria included having strong research and quality improvement processes, a robust health information technology infrastructure, a commitment of personnel, operational and financial resources, and demonstrated experience in collaboration across institutions. The new members will be assimilated into the Collaborative over the next several months.

"We believe that physicians and health care leaders are in a key position to implement meaningful change that makes care safer, more efficient, more effective and more attuned to each patient's needs and preferences," says Dr. James N. Weinstein, director of The Dartmouth Institute and president of the Dartmouth-Hitchcock Clinic. "At the same time, based on our research and individual experience, we know that by doing this, we actually lower costs."

Currently, the Collaborative is working together in nine increasingly prevalent condition/disease-specific areas that have been shown nationally to have wide variation in rates, costs and outcomes. These are: total knee replacement; diabetes; asthma; hip surgery; heart failure; perinatal care; depression; spine surgery; and weight loss surgery.  Additional high variation, high cost conditions that affect diverse populations will be added over time.

Beaumont Health System is a three-hospital regional health care system with a total of 1,744 licensed beds, more than 14,000 full-time equivalent employees and 3,700 physicians in Oakland, Macomb and Wayne counties. In addition to its hospitals, Beaumont operates numerous community-based medical centers in Oakland, Macomb and Wayne counties, family practice and internal medicine practices in Macomb and Wayne counties, five nursing centers, a research institute, home care services and hospice. All three Beaumont hospitals are among the Detroit metro area's top-ranked hospitals by U.S. News & World Report with Beaumont, Royal Oak ranking first.
