Summary

Summary

Since 1972, The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation has been the nation's largest philanthropy devoted exclusively to health. To further its mission of improving the health and health care of all Americans, the foundation provides funds for demonstration projects, educational and communications activities, policy analysis, and research. As part of the Foundation's efforts to inform the public, To Improve Health and Health Care 2000 , the third volume the series, provides an in-depth look into the programs it funds. Written for health care policy makers and practitioners and interested members of the public, the series offers useful lessons for leaders and educators developing plans and policies as we begin the 21st century.

From the reconceptualization of demonstration projects to the impact of managed care, the cases discussed in To Improve Health and Health Care 2000 are a compilation of lessons learned by the Foundation and its grantees in tackling some of today's critical health care issues.
