From 1995 to 2004, the Foundation for Accountability (FACCT), a national non-profit organization, advocated for an accountable heath care system in which consumers play an active role in shaping the delivery of care.
David Lansky, PhD, was the President of FACCT from the time it was founded in 1995 until 2004. He joined the Markle Foundation in September of 2004, and served as Director of Health until April 2008. Dr. Lansky was Chair of the Markle Connecting for Health Work Group on Personal Health Records, and has been a member of the Markle Connecting for Health Steering Group since 2002.
Having long supported and collaborated with FACCT on health care quality and consumer outreach initiatives, Markle is committed to ensuring that FACCT's key health care policy and research documents remain accessible to the public through the Markle Special Collection on PolicyArchive.
Some of FACCT's legacy programs are currently managed by the Child and Adolescent Health Measurement Initiative (CAHMI). This organization's mission is to ensure that children, youth, and families are at the center of quality measurement and improvement efforts to advance a high quality, consumer-centered health care system.
