Meet Joe | The Joseph H. Kanter Family Foundation [cached]

A successful businessman and leader of philanthropic efforts throughout the United States, Joseph H. Kanter is a longtime supporter of efforts to improve public health. In 1964, he established the Joseph H. Kanter Foundation, which has backed health care research, educational institutions and a variety of other charitable endeavors. In 1986, the Kanter Foundation established the National Fitness and Jogging Center, located on the National Mall in Washington, D.C. In 1998, Kanter created the Health Legacy Partnership, a private-public partnership between The Joseph H. Kanter Family Foundation and the federal Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality, to develop a national database of medical treatment information. To be available on the Web, the database will give patients and doctors statistically reliable information to consider when they weigh options for treating diagnosed illnesses.

"I believe that every citizen of this great Republic has the inalienable right to know what medicine knows or doesn't know about his or her disease and to have access to detailed data on what works in treating it," Kanter says. Building a national outcomes database is a big job, Kanter acknowledges, but he sees great need for a source of hard data about what works in medicine, and he doesn't shy from a task. "I guess I was born asking questions, seeking challenges, and never, never, never giving up," he says.
Mr. Kanter was born Nov. 15, 1923, in Tarrant, Alabama. He attended the University of Alabama and Georgetown University. During World War II, he was in the infantry, landed on Omaha Beach and fought through France, Holland, and Germany. After his father's death, while Kanter was overseas, he returned to his native Alabama, ran the family general store, and began buying land for apartment developments. He went on to build one of the nation's largest apartment construction and community development companies, with projects in Alabama, Ohio, Indiana, New York, Florida and other states. Real Estate Research considered him the largest viable new town developer in the country. His "new town" developments included Greenbelt, MD, the first large-scale planned community in the Washington, D.C. suburbs, and Forest Park, Ohio and Lauderhill, Florida.
Kanter became a major landholder in Southeast Florida and ultimately settled in Miami. He was Chairman and owner of National Bank of Florida and is currently Chairman of the Kanter Companies whose multiple interests include banking and real estate. Kanter also is Chairman of Kanter Productions and was the producer of the movie "Ironweed," starring Jack Nicholson and Meryl Streep.
Kanter bought the movie rights to the book just before it won the 1984 Pulitzer Prize for fiction.
Mr. Kanter has been involved in the work of the United Jewish Appeal for many years, serving formerly as its national Chairman and on its executive committee. Also, he was President and Chairman of the National Conference on Citizenship, a non-partisan public foundation chartered by Congress that promotes civic participation and civil dialogue. Mr. Kanter married Nancy Reed in 1953.

Joseph H. Kanter Founder, Chairman

Joe Kanter is the Founder and Chairman of the Kanter Family Foundation. A WWII veteran, on May 7th, 2014 he was awarded the Knight of the French Foreign Legion Award at an annual event held in Washington at the Capitol for the Jewish American Heritage Month Ceremony. That day he was additionally honored with the first and continuing Lifetime Achievement Award which will be held in his name for future honorees. At 90 years of age, Joe has been a three time cancer survivor and has since dedicated all of his time to KFF (Kanter Family Foundation) where he was the innovator among his peers in the health care field by starting a patient activist movement to build a Learning Health System. His mission is to create a global LHS (Learning Health System) in order to find what works best in every disease for each individual patient.

As Chuck would say, we would like to see this go to 17 months, weeks or minutes!  The opportunity that took place last month was afforded by Mr. Joe Kanter of the Kanter Family Foundation and Kanter Health.

The Learning Health System [cached]

The opportunity that took place last month was afforded by Mr. Joe Kanter of the Kanter Family Foundation and Kanter Health. He funded the LHS Summit; the Summit Planning Committee (including Frank Rockhold and myself) and was led by Dr. Friedman, assisted by Josh Rubin (Executive Director of Kanter Family Foundation) and students from the University of Michigan.

Joe Kanter encouraged the Planning Committee, when it was formed, with his story about having been diagnosed with prostate cancer 20 years ago and finding no available information on how to make an informed decision in terms of his treatment. He is now 88 years old and plays tennis daily - don't we all hope for that?! He also opened the Summit: "We needed to put together a group that could create the Learning Health System.
I will close this blog with a quote from Joe Kanter: "We are here for our families; that is why we are here. This is too big for any one person, and at the core of the LHS is one of the most underutilized resources --- the patients. Having spent all day last Friday hearing testimony to the HIT Standards and Policy Committees on the theme of Patient Generated Data, there is every reason to agree with Mr. Kanter.
