The ABIM Foundation and Costs of Care kicked off the Creating Value Challenge on November 2. Entries will be accepted through January 24, 2017.
The Creating Value Challenge is a call for innovative ideas and projects for teaching and implementing high-value care among collaborative teams of clinicians, educators, quality improvement specialists and health system administrators.
Health care professionals from any discipline and level of training are invited to submit short abstracts that describe either a project they have already implemented or an idea for a project they believe could have promise in delivering better care at a lower cost.
Winners will be announced in March 2017 and will be invited to present their winning ideas or innovations at the Association of American Medical Colleges Integrating Quality (AAMC IQ) Meeting June 8–9, 2017, near Chicago. Costs of Care along with The Leapfrog Group will jointly recognize health systems that contribute five or more submissions to the Challenge.
