High Value Care

ACP's High Value Care initiative aims to improve health, avoids harms, and eliminates wasteful practices.

The initiative addresses High Value Care broadly, offering learning resources for clinicians and medical educators, clinical guidelines, best practice advice, performance measurement, case studies and patient resources on a wide variety of related topics. Some learning opportunities even offer free CME.

Members, share your experiences in the Member Forum on High Value Care.

Resources for Medical Educators

ACP believes it is the responsibility of medical educators to champion the philosophies of High Value Care in order to successfully pass these lessons along to future generations. That is why we have created a number of resources to help medical educators teach the principles of High Value Care effectively. Resources include curriculum for educators, students and subspecialty fellows, courses for faculty, as well as a video to help teach your faculty how to implement the High Value, Cost-conscious Care Curriculum.
