Costs of Care, in partnership with the ABIM Foundation, is putting out a call for innovative ideas and projects for teaching and implementing high value care among collaborative teams of clinicians, educators, quality improvement specialists, and health system administrators. Health care professionals from any discipline and level of training are invited to submit short abstracts that either describe a project they have already implemented or an idea for a project they believe could have promise in delivering better care at a lower cost.
"Across the country, healthcare providers are finding creative ways to address the growing challenges Americans face in affording care. We're excited to learn from these innovators and help share their insights broadly," says Neel Shah, MD, Founder and Executive Director of Costs of Care.
Costs of Care and the ABIM Foundation are once again launching the Value Challenge to inspire and share innovations among collaborative teams of clinicians, educators, quality improvement specialists, and health system administrators.
The Challenge builds on the ABIM Foundation’s Choosing Wisely® campaign, a national effort that encourages clinicians and patients to have conversations about avoiding unnecessary tests and treatments.
Last year's Challenge amassed over 80 diverse submissions, with Creating Value winners focused on implementing high-value care in clinical practice and Teaching Value winners focused on improving medical education curricula around delivering high-value care.
Winners for both the Teaching Value Innovator and Creating Value Innovator Awards will be recognized at the Institute for Healthcare Improvement (IHI) National Forum in December 2018 in Orlando, Florida.
