Abstract

National efforts to improve the value of health care must include graduate medical education (GME) if they are to succeed. Proposals to teach residents to provide value-based care have come from the Medicare Payment Advisory Commission (MedPAC), the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME) and the American College of Physicians (ACP). Such proposals skip a key step: residency programs currently lack a clear strategy to prepare residents to assess and deliver value-based care. In this article, we present the VALUE Framework for programs to utilize to teach residents to assess and deliver value-based care for their patients. We then present more than 20 opportunities for residency programs to incorporate training in value-based care.
