High Value Care
ACP's High Value Care initiative aims to improve health, avoid harms, and eliminate wasteful practices.
The initiative addresses High Value Care broadly, offering learning resources for clinicians and medical educators, clinical guidelines, best practice advice, case studies and patient resources on a wide variety of related topics. Some learning opportunities even offer free CME and MOC.
Resources for Clinicians
The following free 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.

ACP releases a new Clinical Guideline regarding the appropriate use of point-of-care ultrasound (POCUS) for patients with acute dyspnea in emergency departments or in-patient settings.
High Value Care Committee
The High Value Care Committee (HVCC) 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. The HVCC was previously called the High Value Care Task Force.
