Costs of Care and the ABIM Foundation launched the Teaching Value in Healthcare Learning Network in March 2015.
The Learning Network serves hundreds of educators and health systems directors and connects them to leaders in the field who share practical advice about how to develop engaging curriculum and health systems innovations.
Our goal is to openly discuss ways to get started, implement, and sustain feasible innovations at your institution or organization.
Choosing Wisely Challenge winner Robert Fogerty, MD, assistant professor of medicine and academic hospitalist at Yale School of Medicine. Dr. Fogerty will discuss “I-CARE” (Interactive Cost-Awareness Resident Exercise), which he created to engage faculty and trainees in a friendly competition to create effective, lower cost care plans.
As part of the Teaching Value in Health Care Learning Network we are pleased to have Dr. Daisy Smith from ACP present on the ACP-AAIM curricula on High Value Care and other efforts led by the ACP to teach medical students, residents, faculty, and practicing physicians. We encourage community members to share their questions in advance or during the live presentation.
As part of the Teaching Value in Health Care Learning Network we are pleased to have Dr. Mitesh Patel from the University of Pennsylvania present on an intervention implemented by the Division of General Internal Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania aimed at increasing the prescribing of generic equivalents when available.
Join us for a discussion with Dr. Eileen Moser about the SOAP-V framework. SOAP-V is a modified SOAP presentation that encourages students to consider high value care during patient care delivery. The SOAP-V model prompts students to consider: 1) Before choosing an intervention, have I considered whether the result would change management? 2) Have I incorporated the patient’s goals and values, and considered the potential harm of the intervention compared to alternatives? 3) What is the known and potential cost of the intervention, both immediate and downstream?
We encourage members of the community to post any questions for Dr. Moser in advance of the Hangout. Live Q&A will also be available, and a recording will be available immediately following the talk.
Join us for a discussion with Corinna Zygourakis about the OR SCORE project. It is well known that surgical costs are extremely high, but most surgeons have little knowledge of their operating room costs. The goal of OR SCORE (OR Surgical Cost Reduction Project) is to enable surgeons to practice cost-effective surgery by providing them with price transparency information about their surgical cases.
Join us for a discussion with Martin Muntz about the Medical College of Wisconsin’s “High Value Care Officers.” Dr. Muntz and colleagues assigned third-year medical students on their internal medicine clerkship to roles as “High Value Care Officers.” The students were prepared using a series of short podcasts and an iPad-based Choosing Wisely checklist before being asked to initiate conversations with colleagues on opportunities for improvement.
Join us for a discussion with Dr. Miriam Schechter and Mr. Dominic Lorusso about a partnership between a medical school and Consumer Reports to promote student and faculty use of patient education materials on Choosing Wisely recommendations.
Join us for a discussion with Dr. Tanner Caverly and Dr. Brandon Combs about the “Do No Harm” Project. The “Do No Harm” project was created at the University of Colorado School of Medicine to encourage trainees on an outpatient internal medicine rotation to identify examples of harmful overtesting, overdiagnosis, and overtreatment and write them up as case vignettes.
Hosted by Dr. Vineet Arora, this engaging conversation features Drs. Brandon Combs and Tanner Caverly discussing the Do No Harm Project they created while at the University of Colorado School of Medicine to encourage trainees to identify examples of harmful overtesting, overdiagnosis and overtreatment. These scenarios were then written up as case vignettes for the Teachable Moments series in JAMA Internal Medicine.
