Inter-Hospital Collaborative Studies to Improve Transition of Care and Readmission Rates  in Academic Hospitals- MGH & BWH

Clinicians and hospital systems are under significant pressure to deliver optimal care in competitive markets with new emphasis on not only successful outcomes, but also benchmarks of quality, safety and cost.  Value-added care is a broad term which encompasses these concepts and the teaching of value-added care has become important in academic medical centers across the country.  This IHC session focuses on early innovations in the teaching of value-added care and seeks to provide a forum for discussion of the opportunities and challenges in this vital curricular area. During this session, participants will learn about and discuss innovative curricular efforts to teach value-added care to our HMS trainees.

Charles J. Hatem, MD, Professor of Medicine, Mount Auburn Hospital
Beth A. Lown, MD, Associate Professor of Medicine, Mount Auburn Hospital
Lori R. Newman, MEd,Principal Associate in Medicine, Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center

This will be an interactive presentation of the history, curriculum development, implementation, teaching strategies, and evaluation of two well-established, yearlong HMS medical education fellowship programs that have run concurrently for 16 years.  
We'll begin by having the participants "experience" the fellowship by engaging the group in a core fellowship activity.  We will go on to describe the history, principles, and curricular methods of the fellowships. We will then discuss the mix-method evaluation methods we have used to assess the fellowship programs. First we will describe the use of qualitative methods to study the personal and professional impact of the fellowships. Next, using "Kirkpatrick's education evaluation framework" we will present findings from our quantitative CV analysis study. This will include a description of the fellowships' impact on our graduates' academic careers, their learners, and affiliated organizations
