The State House News Service in Massachusetts reported Tuesday that Berwick is thinking seriously about running for governor next year, after Gov. Deval Patrick (D) steps down.

"That's correct. I'm strongly considering it," Berwick told the news service.

Berwick helped found the Institute for Healthcare Improvement at Harvard University, and is a fellow at the liberal Center for American Progress.
