On October 21, 2019, the National Academy of Medicine announced the election of 90 regular members and 10 international members. Peter Margolis, MD, PhD, Scientific Director for ImproveCareNow, was among those elected. 

Dr. Margolis is the Co-Director of the James M. Anderson Center for Health Systems Excellence at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center and Professor of Pediatrics at the University of Cincinnati. His work encompasses the application and study of quality improvement methods in a broad range of areas including primary and sub-specialty care, communities and public health settings to improve the health outcomes of children, families and communities.

Dr. Margolis' election to the National Academy of Medicine, by current academy members, is a recognition of his leadership on large-scale health system innovation and transformation, and creating a new form of collaborative Learning Health System that demonstrates improved outcomes for millions of children.

“These newly elected members represent the most exceptional scholars and leaders whose remarkable work has advanced science, medicine, and health in the U.S. and around the globe. Their expertise will be vital to addressing today’s most pressing health and scientific challenges and informing the future of health and medicine for the benefit of us all.”
