Elliott Fisher, MD, MPH
Dr. Fisher is the James W. Squires Professor of Medicine and Community and Family Medicine at Dartmouth Medical School and Director for Population Health and Policy at the Dartmouth Institute for Health Policy and Clinical Practice. He is also Co-Director of the Dartmouth Atlas of Health Care. His early research focused on exploring the causes of the two fold differences in spending observed across U.S. regions and on understanding the implications of these variations for health and health care. The research revealed that most of the variations in Medicare spending are due not to differences in health status, preferences, prices or poverty, but to greater use of discretionary services and that greater use of these services does not lead to better quality or better health outcomes.
His recent work has focused on developing policy approaches to slowing the growth of health care spending while improving quality. He was one of the originators of the concept of "accountable care organizations" (ACOs), and is now leading, with Mark McClellan, a joint Brookings-Dartmouth program to advance ACOs through research, coordination of public and private initiatives and the creation of a learning collaborative that includes pilot ACO sites across the U.S. He is also working with multiple stakeholders to accelerate the adoption and implementation of more robust measures of health outcomes, care experience, decision-quality and costs to support both practice improvement and performance measurement. He received his undergraduate and medical degrees from Harvard University and completed his internal medicine residency and public health training at the University of Washington. He is a member of the Institute of Medicine of the National Academy of Sciences.
