The Markle Foundation Selects PolicyArchive to
House Its Foundation for Accountability (FAACT) Legacy Documents
PolicyArchive has launched a new special collection of documents for the Markle Foundation. This new special collection contains research from the Foundation for Accountability (FACCT), a former national non-profit organization that advocated an accountable health care system in which consumers play an active role in shaping the delivery of care. This research is available at http://markle.policyarchive.org.
The Markle Foundation supported and collaborated with FACCT on health care quality and consumer outreach initiatives. By selecting PolicyArchive to house the FACCT legacy documents, the foundation continues its commitment to ensure that FACCT's key health care policy and research documents remain accessible to a broad research community that can benefit from its collection.
An example of the important work contained in the Markle Foundation FACCT Collection is its Innovators and Visionaries: Strategies for Creating a Person-centered Health System (September 2003). Published one year before FACCT ceased operations in 2004, the report reached important findings at the time and provided recommendations on creating a more person-centered health care system.
This and other FACCT studies can be found in PolicyArchive’s larger Markle Foundation Special Collection. This special collection concentrates on research relating to the intersection of privacy and information exchange within the policymaking landscape. Covering topics as far-ranging as health, education and national security, its documents concentrate on the use of networked information that address key public policy issues and needs.
