Anne-Marie J. Audet, M.D. and Anthony Shih write of the roll the Commonwealth Fund’s program on quality played in shaping the field to advance a high-performance health system for all. With a nod to how the development of WhyNotTheBest.org, a free resource for health care professionals to benchmark their performance against their peers and find improvement resources, has helped accelerate quality improvement activities in hundreds of hospitals across the country and demonstrated the value of performance benchmarking and transparency at a time when those issues were being debated nationally.
