Toolkit is latest component of ACP's High Value Care
initiative to improve health, avoid harms, and eliminate wasteful
April 11, 2014 — The American College of Physicians (ACP) today
unveiled a High
Value Care Coordination Toolkit designed to enable more
effective and patient-centered communication between primary care
and subspecialist doctors.
"Physicians need specific information to do their jobs
effectively," said Molly Cooke, MD, MACP, who is completing her
one-year term as ACP's president. "The High Value Care Coordination
Toolkit facilitates clear communication between primary care and
subspecialist practices so that doctors can provide seamless,
coordinated, and quality care to their patients."
The toolkit was developed collaboratively through ACP's Council
of Subspecialty Societies (CSS) and patient advocacy groups. CSS
acts as a forum for the exchange of ideas between ACP and
subspecialty organizations on matters affecting medicine in general
and subspecialty societies in particular. The High Value Care
Coordination Toolkit includes five components:

Care initiative, which is designed to help doctors and patients
understand the benefits, harms, and costs of tests and treatment
options for common clinical issues so they can pursue care together
that improves health, avoids harms, and eliminates wasteful

About ACP's High Value Care Initiative
ACP's High Value Care
initiative is designed to help doctors and patients understand
the benefits, harms, and costs of tests and treatment options for
common clinical issues so they can pursue care together that
improves health, avoids harms, and eliminates wasteful practices.
ACP defines High Value Care as the delivery of services providing
benefits that make their harms and costs worthwhile. Value is not
merely cost. Some expensive tests and treatments have high value
because they provide high benefit and low harm. Conversely, some
inexpensive tests or treatments have low value because they do not
provide enough benefit to justify even their low costs and might
even be harmful.
