Title: Universal Coverage and Controlling Costs– Health Priorities for President Obama

Summary: A pie chart of what citizens think the Obama administration should do about the health care reform first in order of importance: improve quality, improve efficiency and cost control, or increase coverage. People then voted on their views, then the Commonwealth Fund Foundation turned it into a pie chart based on what should happen first.

Topic: Universal health care

Category: Image

What is it?: An image of a pie chart found on a blog.

Support: Commonwealth Fund Health Care Opinion Leaders Survey

Audience and Agenda: This chart was originally created by the Commonwealth Fund, a private foundation working toward a high performance health system. The fund carries out this mandate by supporting independent research on health care issues and making grants to improve health care practice and policy.

Usefulness: This site offers many other charts, graphs and statistical data about universal health care in the U.S. I found the pie chart from a blog strictly about health care. Jane Sarasohn-Kahn, the author of this blog, is a health economist and management consultant who has worked with health care stakeholders for over twenty years.
