hvc.acponline.org is latest resource in ACP's High Value
PHILADELPHIA, January 16, 2013 -- The American College of
Physicians (ACP) has launched a new High Value Care website to help
physicians and other health care professionals, medical students,
and patients understand the benefits, harms, and costs of tests and
treatment options for common clinical issues and whether they
provide good value.
"The American College of Physicians is committed to helping
physicians provide the best possible care to their patients while
simultaneously slowing the unsustainable rate of health care
costs," said David L. Bronson, MD, FACP, president, ACP.
"Physicians and patients can use ACP's High Value Care website to
learn how to pursue care together to improve health, avoid harms,
and reduce wasteful practices."
The new website centralizes resources and information developed
by ACP to support its ongoing High Value Care initiative. The
streamlined design simplifies access to various features,
ACP launched its High Value Care initiative in 2010 because
health care expenditures are projected to reach almost 20 percent
of the United States' GDP by 2020. Many economists consider this
spending rate unsustainable. Up to 30 percent, or $765 billion, of
health care costs were identified as potentially avoidable -- with
many of these costs attributed to unnecessary services.
"By identifying and eliminating wasteful practices that do not
improve health, physicians can provide the best possible care to
their patients while reducing unnecessary costs to the health care
system at the same time," said Steven E. Weinberger, MD, FACP,
Chief Executive Officer and EVP, ACP.
ACP considers 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 or might potentially be harmful.
The American College of Physicians is
the largest medical specialty organization and the second-largest
physician group in the United States. ACP members include 133,000
internal medicine physicians (internists), related subspecialists,
and medical students. Internal medicine physicians are specialists
who apply scientific knowledge and clinical expertise to the
diagnosis, treatment, and compassionate care of adults across the
spectrum from health to complex illness. Follow ACP on Twitter and Facebook.
