Who should register?
Healthcare trainees, professionals, and patients who want to help reshape the American Healthcare System by learning the skills we need to deflate medical bills and protect patients' wallets.
What will you learn?
Everyone who successfully completes the Teaching Value modules will receive a Costs of Care certificate, demonstrating your ability to:
- Articulate the major reasons why healthcare costs are rising
- Understand reasons physicians commonly overuse tests
- Strategies to reduce over-testing
- Advise patients on methods to reduce the costs of their prescription drugs
The Costs of Care Teaching Value Project is an initiative of Costs of Care that is funded by the ABIM Foundation. Increasingly, physicians, nurses and other caregivers are being called upon to improve the value of the care they are providing and to consider how their decisions impact what patients pay. Unfortunately, they often do not have the skills, training, or support to do so.
The Teaching Value Project team are a group of medical educators who believe it is time to change this. We are dedicated to transforming the American healthcare system by empowering cost-conscious caregivers to deflate medical bills and protect patients' wallets.
