Call for Submissions: Creating Value Challenge 2015

Are you a clinician or clinician-in-training with an idea for providing better medical care at lower cost? Submit your ideas for the Costs of Care Creating Value Challenge 2015 on Medstro, the Social Network for Physicians.

This is an open invitation for your ideas — those already in place and ones to implement in the future — for providing better medical care at lower cost.

Five finalists will be chosen among the submissions and flown to a live “pitch-off” at the University of California San Francisco medical campus on October 22, 2015 where a Grand Prize winner will be chosen.

The Costs of Care Creating Value Challenge Grand Prize will go to the innovation or bright idea that best demonstrates improvements along two sets of criteria: FINER (feasible, interesting, novel, ethical and relevant) and COST (culture, oversight, systems and training).

Submit your idea now!

The Costs of Care Creating Value Challenge 2015 is sponsored by The American Resident Project, the UCSF Center for Healthcare Value and JAMA Internal Medicine.

Creating Value submissions can be adapted and eligible for entry in the 3rd annual Teaching Value and Choosing Wisely® Challenge launching in November 2015. The Teaching Value and Choosing Wisely® Challenge is a national challenge sponsored by Costs of Care and the American Board of Internal Medicine Foundation.
