Health System Reform Policies

In 2008, the Membership of the National Board requested the development of a series of policy statements regarding health system reform. The approximately 80 Members of the NBME have participated with staff in identifying the areas of focus and in drafting the policy and background language. These policies were formally adopted by the NBME Membership in March, 2011. The rationale for this document is partly to support the goals of healthcare reform, but also to commit the NBME to promoting these goals, particularly where NBME assessment instruments can emphasize their importance. As stated in the document, health system reform offers the opportunity to improve many elements that contribute to overall health system quality and efficiency. The document urges policy makers to continue to consider specific recommendations for change that the NBME believes will improve our healthcare delivery system.
