Founding principles

The Hippocratic Oath includes a commitment to “remember that…illness may affect the person’s family and economic stability. My responsibility includes these related problems, if I am to care adequately for the sick.”  

As such, HVPAA was founded on the following principles:

    1. Medicine is a public trust, and to maintain the trust that the public places in physicians and other health care workers, medical providers have a responsibility to improve value in health care.
    2. Cross-institutional collaboration is essential to effectively improve health care value on a national scale.
    3. Outcomes research must ensure that refinements maintain or ideally improve providers’ ability to diagnose and treat patients.
    4. Engaging medical students, resident physicians and fellows in this work is key to creating lasting improvements in practice.

The alliance provides a forum for academic medical institutions to collaborate on best practice performance improvement initiatives and peer reviewed publications related to health care value. The alliance does not provide medical advice.
