Commonwealth Fund awards $263,658 to HSC

August 2007

The Commonwealth Fund, a private foundation that supports health care issue research, awarded the Health Science Center $263,658 to evaluate the American Academy of Family Physicians’ practice redesign initiative, called TransforMED.

"The Commonwealth Fund grant will enable us to evaluate TransforMED from the perspective of patients," said Carlos R. Jaén, M.D., Ph.D., professor and chair of the department of family and community medicine and holder of the Dr. John M. Smith Jr. Professorship in Family Practice. "This is important because current efforts to improve practice often rely on technology-only solutions and pay little attention to how the changes impact patient-centered care."
