It is a pleasure to issue my first comments as the President and CEO of The Healthcare Research Foundation. As a privately funded non-profit 501 (c)(3) organization our basic mission is and always will be to drive information from the private to the public setting and to share data and information for the overall social good.


Whether we are providers, payors, patients or firms like THRF, we must all be part of the healthcare solution. We all agree that the federal Affordable Care Act has its flaws, but it is only a framework and we have to fix what’s wrong and drive private enterprise to make it work. When has it been any different?


While we may be at some healthcare crossroads, I urge all concerned to support the public interest and “stay in the game.” I look forward to helping guide that process.
