Teaching Value Project, Choosing Wisely Competition Accepting Applications for 2015


Costs of Care (www.costsofcare.org), a nonprofit dedicated to empowering patients and their caregivers to deflate medical bills, and the American Board of Internal Medicine (ABIM) Foundation plan to launch their second annual Teaching Value and Choosing Wisely Competition this fall to highlight healthcare innovations promoting value. The submission deadline is Feb. 1, 2015.

The Teaching Value Project, the main educational arm of Costs of Care, has developed web-based video training modules based on actual cases, along with other educational materials to help residents and medical students learn to make clinical decisions optimizing quality and cost, says Christopher Moriates, MD, hospitalist and co-chair of the University of California-San Francisco’s High-Value Care Committee.

Details of the contest will be posted at www.teachingvalue.org. For more information, send an e-mail to [email protected].
