    I encourage you to attend this event. Dr. Berwick has been a seminal figure in advancing and defining accountable care, most recently in his role as the head of CMS. His inclination towards multiple, simultaneous innovation experiments is pivotal in accelerating the learning and diffusion of the experience that can transform healthcare delivery in the U.S. Despite criticism by advocates of more traditional “controlled” experimentation, Berwick’s assertion that each organization can monitor and gauge progress is a practical way to scale and build out the kind of advancements that can flourish, like the Enhanced Primary Care model sponsored by CDPHP.
