Multiple Specialties

Research and education are integral to the transition to high value care. Outcomes research must ensure that cost-conscious care improves value without sacrificing quality or safety. Changing long-standing provider practice patterns is challenging, underscoring the importance of delineating interventions that most effectively influence prescribing and ordering behavior. Academic medical centers from across the United States and Canada will come together to celebrate high value care and describe quality improvement projects that have safely reduced low value practice through oral presentations and posters. The program will also include presentations from renowned faculty leaders in high value care. Additionally, presentations will focus on innovative curricula developed by academic medical centers for undergraduate and graduate medical education to instill high value practice in future generation of physicians.
