The CHV Training Initiative defines, champions and integrates high-quality education in healthcare value throughout training programs for educators, clinicians, researchers and healthcare leaders.
Specifically, the initiative seeks to foster an understanding of the role of cost-consciousness in healthcare decision-making and to promote value-based healthcare as a fundamental aspect of education by:
- developing a cadre of educators with focused expertise in teaching the principles and practice of healthcare value;
- preparing clinicians to recognize and appropriately implement high-value, cost-conscious decisions in their everyday practice and within the healthcare systems in which they work;
- encouraging research in healthcare value, including work that defines cost-conscious clinical recommendations and policies on the local, national and international levels; and
- training healthcare leaders to promote high-value, cost-conscious care at all levels, from the greater system to individual clinician/patient interactions.
