ACP believes that it is the responsibility of the medical profession to become cost-conscious and decrease unnecessary care that does not benefit patients.
Below, ACP provides free resources to help you implement High Value Care principles into your practice and focus on optimal diagnostic and treatment strategies.
High Value Care Cases
Learn how to eliminate unnecessary health care costs and improve patient outcomes while earning free CME and MOC through these 30- to 60-minute online interactive cases.
Cost of Care Conversations
ACP’s Cost of Care Conversations tools were developed to help clinicians and patients understand the importance of talking about costs of care and to help them efficiently and effectively address cost issues in the clinical setting.
As part of the ongoing Choosing Wisely campaign, ACP partnered with the ABIM Foundation to develop a set of interactive skill-building video modules to enhance physician communication.
High Value Care Coordination Toolkit
The High Value Care Coordination (HVCC) Toolkit provides resources to facilitate more effective and patient-centered communication between primary care and subspecialist doctors.
Pediatric to Adult Care Transitions Initiative
This ACP initiative is a collaborative effort to develop a toolkit to facilitate more effective transitions and transfers of young adults from pediatric to adult care.
Guidelines and Recommendations
ACP's goal is to provide clinicians with recommendations based on the best available evidence; to inform clinicians of when there is no evidence; and finally, to help clinicians deliver the best health care possible.
