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.
