High Value Care
High Value Care improves health, avoids harms, and eliminates wasteful practices.
ACP's initiative addresses High Value Care broadly, and offers 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.
Resources for Clinicians
The following resources were created by ACP to help you implement High Value Care principles into your practice and focus on optimal diagnostic and treatment strategies, based upon considerations of value, effectiveness, and avoidance of overuse and misuse. Resources include Clinical Guidelines & Recommendations, Pediatric to Adult Care Transitions Toolkit, Performance Measurement, the High Value Care Coordination Toolkit, as well as High Value Care Cases, HVC Pediatric Cases, Managing Conflicts on Interest Cases, Video Learning Modules developed as part of the Choosing Wisely initiative, and Ethics Case Studies.
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.
Resources for Patients
These resources represent a collaboration between ACP and Consumer Reports and are designed to help patients understand the importance of seeking appropriate care in order to maximize value and live a healthy life. Resources include advice for adult vaccines, lower back pain, diabetes and more.
HVC Task Force
The High Value Care Task Force (HVCTF) develops recommendations and resources focused on High Value Care that assist physicians to provide the best possible care to their patients while simultaneously reducing unnecessary costs to the healthcare system.
Disclosures of Interest for all members and ACP staff are reported, discussed, and resolved at the start of each High Value Care Task Force meeting and conference call.
