Elliott S. Fisher Biography

Dr. Fisher is Director of the Dartmouth Institute for Health Policy and Clinical Practice and the John E Wennberg Distinguished Professor of Health Policy, Medicine and Community and Family Medicine at the Geisel School of Medicine at Dartmouth. His research has focused on exploring the causes and consequences of regional and provider-specific differences in spending and quality and, more recently, on developing policy approaches to slowing the growth of spending while improving quality. He was one of the originators of the concept of “accountable care organizations” (ACOs) and worked with colleagues to carry out the research that led to their inclusion in the Affordable Care Act. His current research is exploring the determinants of successful ACO formation and performance. He received his undergraduate and medical degrees from Harvard University and his MPH from the University of Washington. He has published over 150 research articles and commentaries and is a member of the Institute of Medicine.

Elliott S. Fisher Speaking Topics

  • Understanding Health Care and How to Fix it: Insights from the Dartmouth Atlas

    For nearly 20 years, The Dartmouth Atlas of Health Care has documented remarkable variations in clinical practice and health care spending across the United States – with greater than five fold differences in rates of common surgical procedures and two-fold differences in mortality rates and per-capita spending. The research demonstrating that higher spending or greater utilization rates were not associated with better quality or outcomes not only helped motivate health care reform, but also provided the insights about what principles should guide reform: (1) ensuring that when the evidence about benefit is unequivocal, health systems should achieve high levels of reliability in delivering these evidence-based services (doing the right thing right); (2) ensuring that when tradeoffs are involved (as in most clinical decisions), patients’ well-informed preferences must guide treatment choices (doing the right thing for the right patient); (3) ensuring that payment and delivery models are aligned to enable providers to improve care and lower costs (doing the right thing, and no more). Dr. Fisher is one of the founders of the Dartmouth Atlas and remains active in its leadership. Insights from this presentation will be useful to clinicians, health system leaders and others interested in advancing their understanding of the remarkable opportunities to improve the performance of health systems in the US and across the globe.

  • ReThink Health/Beyond Accountable Care

    While health care reform has expanded insurance coverage and new payment models offer promise, many challenges remain: some providers are taking advantage of market power to raise prices; the prevalence of obesity and chronic conditions continues to rise; and the important environmental, social, behavioral and economic determinants of future health remain unaddressed. The ReThink Health initiative builds on the work of 2009 Nobel Prize winner Elinor Ostrom, who demonstrated that when properly organized and structured, stakeholders have come together to effectively address complex social problems (ranging from preserving local pastures or fisheries to solving region-wide water use issues). Dr. Fisher will describe the ReThink Health initiative, which is now active in several regions of the US and is intended to complement and leverage ongoing delivery and payment system reforms through three mechanisms: (1) active stewardship – building local community-based backbone organizations that works to align activities to maximize collective impact; (2) effective strategy – drawing on an advanced, evidence based simulation model to help guide the selection and timing of initiatives to achieve impact; and (3) sustainable finance – working with national, state and local payers and policy makers to align financing approaches to ensure sustainability of health care systems and support for community-based interventions.

  • The Future of American Healthcare: navigating the inevitable transition from volume to value.

    In each of these presentations, Dr. Fisher will describe why the U.S. health care system is under such stress — and why the transition to new payment and delivery models is inevitable. He will then review the origins and evidence underlying each of the emerging new payment models, including bundled payments, the patient centered medical home, and accountable care organizations (ACOs), a policy initiative that he helped design and incorporate in the Affordable Care Act. He will then discuss the implications of current trends in payment and delivery reform for each of the major stakeholders (if a general audience), or more narrowly, for specific audiences. As follows:

    For physicians/providers: The transition to new payment and delivery models represents a threat to old ways of working and thinking – and an opportunity to realign clinicians’ work with the values that brought us to medicine. Under new payment models, physicians are taking responsibility not only for ensuring the best possible care for each patient they see, but also for ensuring that all patients in their practice or system with a given condition – such as diabetes, heart failure or cystic fibrosis – receive the best care possible. Achieving high levels of performance under new payment models requires not only new technical skills (such as use of registries, quality improvement, and care coordination), but also new leadership skills (negotiation and managing organizational change). The talk will include an overview of the current status of ACO implementation; specific examples of how provider groups working under new payment models have both improved care and lowered costs; and how moving down this path offers physicians, nurses and other health professionals an opportunity to reconnect with the values that brought them to health care.

    For health system executives: The transition to new payment and delivery models represents a serious threat to current institutional goals and practices. While the challenges are substantial, health system leaders need to prepare for the transition – and begin to put in place the capabilities that will be needed to survive (or thrive) in new payment environments. These range from the adaptive leadership skills of change management, physician engagement and collaboration across institutional boundaries to the technical skills of establishing information systems capable of population management, identifying and effectively managing high cost, high need patients, and implementing modern quality improvement methods to both reduce costs and improve care. The talk will include an overview of the current status of ACO implementation; specific examples of how high performing systems are both improving care and lowering costs; and how moving down this path offers the opportunity to realign the daily work of health care with the values underlying the health professions.

    For insurance, pharma and device manufacturing executives: Threat and opportunity. The transition to new payment and delivery models represents a serious threat to current business models. Many fear that the various approaches to value-based payment – from episode-based payments to Accountable Care Organizations will either eliminate their role in the health care market place (health plans, for example) or will sharply reduce their market share as pressure to reduce costs increase (pharmaceutical and device manufacturers). In this presentation, Dr. Fisher will describe the origins of the ACO model, the current status of ACO implementation (which is emerging as a partnership between health plans and providers); and the remarkably diverse ways in which it is playing out in the current U.S. market – and elsewhere. He will describe how various sectors – ranging from health plans to device manufacturers – can succeed in this changing environment.
