The AHA Physician Alliance July 10 at 3:30 p.m. ET will host a webinar featuring Chris Moriates, M.D., a hospital medicine physician and assistant dean for health care value at Dell Medical School at The University of Texas at Austin. He will discuss current progress in improving value for patients in the hospital through initiatives to decrease low-value testing and treatments, and via tools that provide foundational education about value. He also will explore the "next frontiers" to advance the movement of value through measuring and improving outcomes that matter to patients, creating a high-value care organizational culture, developing an administrative home in hospitals to address overuse and developing interventions for enhancing patient affordability.
