pillars HVPAA 2018

The 2018 annual HVPAA National Conference will be held on September 22-23, 2018 in Baltimore, MD. The abstract submission site opened January 1, 2018.

The mission of the HVPAA annual conference is to broadly advance quality improvement initiatives that have safely improved health care value, investigate safety outcomes to ensure that practice refinement does not compromise diagnostic or therapeutic efficacy, and determine the best methodologies to improve the value of care providers deliver. Any medical center may submit an abstract to be considered for podium or poster presentation.

The annual conference is a highly informative program for anyone in the health care industry interested in safely improving health care value, including hospital leadership (CEO, CQO,CMO, CFO), medical providers (doctors, nurse practitioners, nurses, physician assistants, pharmacists, house staff, medical students), regulatory leads and insurance administrators.

Academic medical centers from across the United States and Canada came together at the 2017 national conference to celebrate high value care and describe quality improvement projects that have safely reduced low value practice through oral presentations and posters. Nearly 200 clinicians, house staff members and administrators from 70 medical centers attended the conference, which featured innovative work from 50 institutions in the U.S. and Canada. Some 140 podium and poster presentations described quality-improvement projects that focused on delivering better patient care by reducing unnecessary health care practices.

The program included lectures from renowned faculty leaders in high value care. Additionally, presentations described innovative curricula developed by academic medical centers for undergraduate and graduate medical education to instill high value practice in future generation of physicians.
