To promote the pursuit of value in health care delivery in the U.S. by identifying high- and low-value clinical services, tracking the use of such services, and helping to ensure that consumer preferences are incorporated in health care decisions.

  • Ongoing research within the consortium emphasizes development and application of methods for value assessment.
  • The consortium will work with researchers to identify the strategies that lead to better value, such as health benefit designs that incentivize the use of high-value services and discourage the use of low-value services.
  • The consortium will also create a learning community to facilitate collaboration and dissemination of the work in these groups conducting research on value in health.
